The global movement of Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs) is growing exponentially. Cities, local and regional governments worldwide are using VLRs to track and report on SDG progress. UN-Habitat views VLRs as powerful accelerators of the process of localizing the Sustainable Development Goals.
To do so, UN-Habitat provides technical support to partners worldwide to develop VLRs based on a fully-fledged testing methodology. Together with international partners, UN-Habitat provides national and local governments with cutting-edge knowledge on VLRs along with opportunities for peer exchange and international engagement.
