As a contribution to the broad public discussion on the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in Serbia, the environmental pillar of the “SDGs for ALL” Platform produced two videos on environmental challenges and potentials facing the municipality of Sremski Karlovci.

The first video presents the activities of local partners in the municipality of Sremski Karlovci related to protected natural areas and sustainable tourism and refers to the SDG 15 (life on land) and 12 (responsible consumption and production). The video is available at this link

The second report deals with the impact of climate change on local viticulture, as one of the most important industries in the municipality of Sremski Karlovci, and refers to the goal of sustainable development 13 (climate action), and partly to goal 12 (sustainable consumption and production). The video is available at this link

Both reports indicate the importance of localization of the universally defined SDGs, so that global long-term development aspirations are closer to the needs of  communities, households and individuals.

The “SDGs for ALL” Platform is supported by the Governments of Switzerland and Germany and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, as part of the “Public Finance Reform – 2030 Agenda” project. The Platform is being implemented in partnership with the Belgrade Open School, Belgrade Fund for Political Excellence, Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, Foundation Center for Democracy, Center for Advanced Economic Studies and Timok Youth Center.

The Platform enables the establishment of a broad discussion among the most important non-state actors in Serbia, such as civil society, corporate sector, academic and research community, professional associations, media and citizens, on aligning Serbia’s development priorities with the goals contained in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
