2030Watch project leader Claudia Schwegmann has written a piece for Citiscope on how the German initiative is working to involve the general public in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals. Involving citizens is a critical aspect of the agenda, and 2030Watch has paved a way for nations to localize the SDGs. Since last year, 2030Watch has been developing a national monitoring tool for Germany that measures progress in the key factors of the SDGs and is catered to the country's specific needs. The tool is advanced, and can be specialized to cater to other countries.

This tool can help advance partnerships with the private sector and civil society, and smooth out the road to achieving the SDGs by 2030.
