For the County Administrative Board to work with Agenda 2030 means this, among other things:

  • ”work long-term to achieve the goals of Agenda 2030
  • cooperate with the county’s actors
  • disseminate information about the work on Agenda 2030 in the county
  • contribute to the implementation of Agenda 2030 in the county.”
