Mechanisms of Vertical Integration


National — sub-national linkages


Implementation of the SDGs by the Icelandic authorities is the task of both administrative levels, the state, on the one hand, and local authorities, on the other. The Association of Local Authorities has a representative in the government’s SDG working group. With the involvement of the Association, the introduction of SDGs is approached as a joint project of the state and municipalities, as they have an important role for successful implementation of the SDGs.
