Lecture of Nikolai Bobylev “Localizing Sustainable Development Goals in the Arctic Region: Voluntary Local Review”

  • 21 October 2021

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs). These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change.

Voluntary Local Review (VLR) is an instrument of local reporting on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are a part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that was adopted by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in September 2015.
