This workshop aimed to familiarize members the Municipality Sakrebulo (local assembly) and representatives of local self-government bodies with the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda with the final goal of strengthening the role of local governments in localizing the SDGs.

Among the topics of the workshop were: the introduction to the SDGs and their importance for Georgia and, in particular, for municipal management.

In summary, the three-day workshop was very successful and a good mix of content and exchanging opinion.

The workshop was capped by opening of UN Corner at Gardabani Municipality.
