Accelerating the SDGs Implementation to Rebuild Better: The Cooperation Strategy of the Parana State, Brazil
Date and Time: Thursday, 8 July 2021 | 12 PM Brazil Time | 5 PM (Central European Time)
The state of Paraná, one of Brazil’s most populated and developed states, has been aligning its public policies with sustainable development since the 1990s. More recently, Paraná has used the SDGs as a tool and framework to reduce longstanding challenges related to health, education, and safety as well as to address global megatrends affecting the state such as climate change, demographic pressures, and digitalisation. Despite the absence of a state-wide sustainable development plan, Paraná is aligning its Multi-Year Plan (PPA) for 2020-23 and other planning and budgeting tools with the SDGs to face the socio-economic territorial disparities within the state. Through a multi-stakeholder governance framework, guidelines, and financial contributions, the state provides incentives to align local and regional planning systems with the 2030 Agenda and to address sustainable development challenges in an integrated way.
The objective of the event is to present an overview of the State of Paraná work on the SDGs, highlighting the partnerships established locally, nationally, and internationally to expand the reach of these tools and accelerate the success of the “Paraná Keeping an Eye on the SDGs Strategy”.
