Strategy for localizing the SDGs in the city of Malmö
With a focus on the following development processes, we strive to increase the City's ability to implement the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs and make them an integral part of our local development work:
The 2030 Agenda is to be a guiding principle for all city operations. Sustainable development is not supposed to be defined as an addition to regular work, rather it must be defined by what the regular work includes and how it is performed. To secure that we are making the right prioritisations to achieve the 2030 Agenda, the Global Goals need to be integrated into existing steering and management system.2. Sustainable development through operational development
Our work with sustainable development is implemented within the entire organisation through the regular operations systems, in development processes and in different networks with a strong focus on management and the municipal owned companies' core tasks. As sustainable development is about balancing the three dimensions of sustainability while having the future generations in mind, we need to strengthen the child and youth perspective in our operational development.3. Planned communication and participation for learning and support
Coherent and planned communication efforts highlighting the local SDG work, with focus on participation and anchoring, will contribute to growing awareness and knowledge both internally and externally. Communication and dialogue are also prerequisites for cooperation, for building knowledge alliances and establishing partnerships.4. Increased knowledge for conscious decisions
Making conscious decisions for sustainable development based on all sustainability dimensions and with an emphasis on achieving the Global Goals, requires knowledge and skills. Conscious decision-making at all levels contribute to a sustainable city.5. Innovative partnerships making a difference
Through active partnerships in local, national and international contexts we try new forms of cooperation involving different actors.
