The SDG Localization project, in collaboration with the United Nations of Development Programme (UNDP), the Ministry of Interior, and the National Economic and Social Development Council (NESDC) under the support of the European Union, has kicked off the multi-stakeholder consultations in 15 pilot provinces, opening up a platform for the government sector, the entrepreneurs, the civil organizations, the academia and the local communities to co-design a sustainable future of their provinces from February to March 2024. These 15 pilot provinces include Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Mae Hong Son, Tak, Udon Thani, Ubon Ratchathani, Nakhon Ratchasima, Bangkok, Phetchaburi, Surat Thani, Phuket, Songkhla, Pattani, Yala, and Narathiwat.


In the series of multi-stakeholder consultations, the data on the SDG progress of each province conducted between November 2023 and January 2024 is presented to all of the stakeholders as they can provide feedback and co-design a future of their province aligned with the SDGs, which all of the insight will be fed to develop a provincial plan of these 15 pilot provinces and this plan will guide about a local project in each province to help achieving the SDGs.

In addition, the mobile exhibition 'We Are All Connected' is being showcased at various festivals in several provinces. This provides a platform for exhibition visitors to weave their ideas through various activities and reflect the sustainable future visions of the provinces in the perceptions of many individuals. The exhibition is taking place along with the SDG Walk Rally in various provinces, to serve as a space to create 'understanding,' 'inspiration,' and cultivate 'intentions' to actively contribute to positive change.
