GIZ Organizes Training for NILG Trainers on SDG Localization Tools and Methods in Gazipur


With a focus on developing future National Institute of Local Government (NILG) trainers on the topic of localizing the SDGs, the Improving the Coordination of International Climate Finance (ICICF) project, implemented by the GIZ, organized a two-day residential training at Sarah Beach Resort, Gazipur.

The training titled “Tools and Methods for Localizing the SDGs – NILG Training of Trainers” was held recently and was conducted by national and international master trainers, reads a press release.

Trainers from NILG participated in the training, including officials from the Governance Innovation Unit (GIU) of the Prime Minister’s Office.

The country’s urban areas play a central role in economic growth. However, a large part of the urban population lives in unsanitary conditions conducive to poverty and lacks access to basic amenities.

In alignment with many other countries around the world, Bangladesh has also developed policies, strategies and plans to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, including policies and strategies related to climate change.

However, the successful implementation of these plans requires capacity and involvement at the local level.

GIZ has partnered with NILG which supports capacity building of local government officials where NILG’s capacities in localizing the SDGs are supported to disseminate knowledge at the local level of the country.

Experts from the University of Engineering and Technology of Bangladesh and Europe developed the training modules and organized the training of trainers on this subject.

This training aims to instil practice-oriented training skills while providing NILG trainers with the opportunity to apply and further develop these skills as trainers.

This included lectures, group work and open discussions on training materials, tools and other activities, attended by 16 officials from the National Institute of Local Government and the Prime Minister’s Office.

The program ended with the distribution of certificates among the participants after designing a model training structure that will be applied in the future training of local government officials.
