Launch of sustainable development guide for councils

A new guide to help councils engage with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has been launched.

The guide has been published by the Local Government Association and the UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development to reinforce the need for coherent decision-making between all levels of government.

The SDGs are an urgent call for action by all countries to end poverty and other deprivations to improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change.

Sir Richard Leese, chair of the LGA’s City Regions Board, said: ‘Local government can play a key role in driving a sustainable recovery that meets the needs of local communities and businesses.

’The SDGs provide a guide to rebuilding our economies in a resilient and sustainable way, focusing on creating good lives on a healthy planet for all people.

’However, in order to meet the scale of the challenge local action must have the backing of national government.’
