Achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Through Transformative Governance Practices and Vertical Alignment at the National and Subnational Levels in Africa
SDplanNet is a sustainable development planning network created to help government professionals at the national and subnational levels share best practices and build capacity in the preparation and implementation of sustainable development strategies and inclusive green economies.
It will act as a vehicle to assist in implementing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This paper is a synopsis of discussions held at the SDplanNet-Africa regional workshop series that took place in Nairobi from March 3–5, 2014. Participating were 27 practitioners from 11 African countries and SDPlanNet colleagues from other regions, including government planning offices and environment departments at the national level, as well as regional organizations and networks with mandates for sustainable development and planning.
