UNDP Global Mission Statement:
UNDP is the UN’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 166 countries, working with national counterparts on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.
The Government of Malaysia is committed to attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and through it, also reach high income country status by 2030. The UN system is the Government’s key partner in taking the SDGs agenda forward. UN Malaysia’s SDGs implementation is divided into three phases. In the current Phase 1, considerable work has been done in anchoring SDGs at the national development planning levels. Efforts are now underway to prepare for Phase 2 implementation which includes developing awareness on the SDGs and involving the subnational structures, focusing on a ‘whole of society’ approach by involving other stakeholders such as civil society, academia, local officials and policymakers etc.
A key stakeholder group is public officials at the subnational levels, particularly at the city levels. Malaysia is experiencing rapid urbanization – from 2004 to 2014, the urban population in Malaysia increased from 66% to 75% and this growth is expected to continue as people migrate from rural areas to urban areas for employment and economic opportunities. Increased greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, higher amounts of waste generated, and more frequent flash floods in urban centers over the last decade are all evidence of the increasing pressures of urbanization. Thus, subnational progress particularly around urban city center will be essential to the attainment of the 2030 Agenda. To drive this local progress through developing local solutions, awareness generation on how the SDGs can support progress across a range of local priorities will be paramount.
In this context, UNDP Malaysia is launching a nationwide campaign to address this SDGs awareness gap and build SDGs champions, focusing on local subnational authorities such as mayors of urban centers as catalysts for the 2030 Agenda. This entails creating an awareness drive among mayors from urban centers from all 13 states in Malaysia through a 6-months-long campaign, followed by a competitive selection of winners chosen for high profile recognition. The campaign will be launched with intensive outreach and advocacy events and dissemination of communication materials to city mayors, who will be invited to develop innovative SDGs awareness campaigns for their respective cities/towns over a period of 6 months. At the end of the campaign period, the top campaigns will be chosen by a panel of eminent judges and an award ceremony will be held recognizing the winners as SDGs champions.
