Commitment Title

Territorialize the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals in four municipalities of the province with a meaningful open government perspective, emphasizing collaboration between actors.

Problem

Some municipalities of the province of Córdoba are carrying an adoption process of the 2030 Agenda, making necessary a collaborative approach in order to accompany local governments in the territorialization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), providing methodologies and modalities that the province has already developed into the process of opening up municipal governments based on their own territorial priorities and demands. 

We recognize that this Agenda is a very ambitious global plan and represents a difficult task that can only be accomplished if governments, individuals, civil society and multilateral organizations partner and work together to leave no one behind.

In order to achieve our global goals we have to make use of platforms that empower citizens through the promotion of openness, transparency and collaboration, such as the Alliance for Open Government, strengthening the complementarity between the elements of governance and open government that encompass these two agendas to their successful implementation.

Status quo

In the province of Córdoba, there are some isolated experiences of the appropriation of the 2030 Agenda. In this sense, a collaborative approach between different levels of government and interest groups is necessary in order to build a sustained policy of implementation of the Agenda 2030 from an open government perspective. 

The need to develop an architecture of processes was detected to face the challenge of being able to identify those problems that impact on the agendas of each locality and understand how the territorialization of the SDGs contributes to their resolution. 

In this way, it is proposed to achieve this knowledge by prioritizing objectives, goals and indicators, defining their relationship and devising specific processes, starting from working collaboratively with the plurality of actors that are linked to the organization and their own interests.

Action

Generating a collaborative process between the provincial government and four selected municipal governments, in relation to their geographic, sociodemographic and political diversity in the provincial territory; and its stakeholders to prioritize the SDGs and their targets based on territorial challenges. 

Lines of action will be established to achieve the 2030 Agenda at the local level, integrating as much as community actors possible. In this sense, to carry out the territorialization process of theSDGs there are some guidelines actions proposed by the Province, called the PRI Method.

Municipalities participating in this first test: Freyre, Alta Gracia, Vicuña Mackenna, San José de la Dormida.

How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem described above?

With this commitment, the aim is to develop a collaborative approach in the provincial territory that implies accompaniment to the local communities and municipalities of the province in order to identify the priority goals of the SDGs for each of the municipalities, based on their realities and in dialogue with stakeholders. 

Based on the prioritized goals and the knowledge of how these goals are linked to each other, joint lines of action are defined with the stakeholders that will feed the development of collaborative, comprehensive public policies aimed at sustainable development at the local level. These lines of action will be very useful to order policies at this key moment of crisis due to the COVID pandemic. In addition, results from this process are expected as prioritization of the SDGs by four municipalities of Córdoba, through a public document available on the Open Management platform, at the same time that the lines of action assumed from this prioritization of the SDGs are shared.

What long-term goal as identified in your Open Government Strategy does this commitment relate to?

Accompanying the process of adopting the SDGs not only means joining the global initiatives for sustainable development, but also urges the institutions and government involved to adapt these goals to the reality that exists in the provincial territory.

In this sense, the commitment promotes evidence-based policies and the monitoring of people\'s well-being and living conditions, development of long-term agreements and encourages cooperation and commitment from territorial actors.
