This portlet should not exist anymore
Towards understanding the context of Leaving No One Behind and efforts to localise the SDGs in Malaysia, two events are covered under this roundtable. The first part is a book launch of the book ‘Making SDGs Matter – Leaving No One Behind’. The book is a culmination of the series of roundtables held by KAS and ISIS Malaysia on SDGs in 2019. It specifically looks into four areas in broadening and deepening the concept of leaving no one behind with a focus on Orang Asli and Orang Asal; food security and rural development; climate change adaptation; and Institutional reforms for SDGs. The book launch will elaborate on the issue of "Leave No one Behind" from these multiple perspectives.
The second part is a close-door expert roundtable on localising the SDGs. It will leverage on the existing All-Party Parliamentary Group on SDGs (APPGM-SDG) that is undertaking research in ten parliamentary constituencies in Malaysia. The constituencies, which cover all regions or corridors of Malaysia will be a good indication and representation of the challenges that local communities face and the potential solutions towards solving those challenges. It is divided into both urban and rural local economies and the issues as well as solutions towards addressing those challenges.
