Luísa Schmidt and João Ferrão (coord.), Madalena Duque dos Santos, Carla Gomes

“SDGlocal” is a project developed by a consortium coordinated by CNADS (National Council for Environment and Sustainable Development), and composed by Observa(ICS-ULisboa), the company 2adapt – Climatic Adaptation Services, and MARE – Center for Sea and the Environment. This project aims to develop and to present a dynamic online tool so as to monitor, analyze, visualize and communicate the municipal contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals.

The main objectives of this online tool are:

– Visualization and evidence of municipal contributions to the SDG’s;

– Monitoring, reporting and raising of funding to support the implementation of the SDG’s;

But also to:

– Strengthen stakeholder collaboration within the SDG frameworks;

– Promote and give visibility to the inspiring initiatives of the citizens.

The SDGlocal Consortium will dedicate 8 months (from October 2018 onwards) to jointly develop a prototype SDGlocal viewer, guaranteeing a technological base of quality, ensuring the scientific rigor of the contents and a good communication strategy, as well as the organization of the events planned for this project. The pioneer Municipalities – Bragança, Cascais, Castelo de Vide, Coruche, Loulé, Seia and Viana do Castelo – undertake to participate in the project workshops (the First Workshop took place at ICS-ULisboa on January 22, 2019) and contribute to the construction and definition of the functionalities of the platform including the preparation of the basic indicators.
