Abstract [en]

The UN emphasises the importance of collaboration and integrated approachesto effectively implement the SDGs. Much of the action will have to take placelocally where municipalities will play an important role in coordinating theefforts towards SDG fulfilment. They are constant local actors close to citizensand they can also influence other actors through their strategies. This paperreflects on how the SDGs can be integrated into existing strategies in order toavoid parallel non-effective processes and to avoid the risk of the SDGs tobecome marginalised. Furthermore, the paper discusses roles and preconditionsof municipalities in the SDG implementation process. This study focuses theimplementation of the SDGs into a regional municipality’s strategic planningand management, Region Östergötland, Sweden. The challenges and opportunitiesconnected to implementing the SDGs will be problematized, and the papergives recommendations on how this type of organisations can implement theSDGs taking advantage from qualities in already existing management andworking procedures.
