As part of the OECD Programme on A Territorial Approach to the SDGs, the  OECD Roundtables on Cities and Regions for the SDGs bring together 140+ representatives from a wide range of cities, regions, national governments, and from the European Commission (DG REGIO, DG DEVCO, JRC), alongside international organisations (UN Habitat, UNESCO, UN Global Compact, World Bank), the private sector (Shell, AXA, Airbus, Arup), networks of cities and regions (UCLG, Eurocities, CEMR, Platforma, C40, Committee of Regions) and other stakeholders such as the World Council on City Data, World Citizens Association, Brookings Institution, Social Progress Imperative, SDSN, various water institutions and the Universities of Pennsylvania and Stanford.


Building on the results of the 1st Roundtable, this 2nd edition, hosted by the City of Bonn, will:


  • Reach a deal on the assessment, recommendations and checklist from the upcoming OECD Report “A Territorial Approach to the Sustainable Development Goals: A Role for Cities and Regions to leave no-one behind”;

  • Take stock of what’s working in Bonn (Germany), Kitakyushu (Japan), Córdoba (Argentina), Flanders (Belgium), Southern Denmark (Denmark), Viken (Norway), Kópavogur (Iceland), Parana (Brazil) and Moscow (Russian Federation);

  • Put our heads together to fine-tune the OECD localised indicator framework for SDGs and discuss data produced from 601 regions and 649 cities worldwide;

  • Learn from each other through sharing lessons and showcasing experiences from leading cities, regions, national governments and international organisations;

  • Define a path to support cities and regions developing Voluntary Local Reviews and be further engaged in Voluntary National Reviews.
