The core of the APPGM-SDG work is to identify local needs and issues based on the SDGs. The APPGM-SDG employs bottoma-up and participatory approaches in mapping issues and analyzing the situations on the ground.

The methodologies involve focus group discussions with the grassroots communities, community leaders, local non-governmental organizations, district-level civil servants, the MPs and officers, and the government agencies. The APPGM-SDG prioritizes key issues from the findings of the issue mapping, with further inputs from the MP office and government agencies. The mapping and prioritization of issues assist the APPGM-SDG in identifying local solution projects to be undertaken by the local solution providers.

After the issue mapping, the APPGM-SDG delves deeper into the key issues with situational analysis. The analysis entails desk research, focus group discussion, in-depth interviews and possibly surveys. Its report furnishes necessary data and analysis for the APPGM-SDG’s policy advocacy.

solution projects

SDG solution projects (micro) as a pointer for long term solutions and to be reviewed for sustainability

Solution projects which are micro-projects with micro funds of RM20,000-RM40,000 for a period of 3 to 4 months illustrate the possibilities of local solutions. It is also an exercise in trust-building moving beyond field study and documentation of local needs and issues.

Micro solution projects require further work on sustainability to ensure that it does not end as a one-off project. As APPGM-SDG provides only two-year funding and thereafter a selected number of best solutions projects shall move into long-term projects with new sources of funding from CSR and GLC sources as well as community funding. 


Promotion of SDGs at the district level

Our major task is localizing SDGs at the grassroots especially at the district and local authority level by ensuring no one is left behind and encouraging agencies and local communities to appreciate the cross-cutting nature of development and sustainability with a focus on the five Ps namely People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership.

To achieve this, we undertake a need assessment at the district level and undertake local solution projects.

  • We network with agencies (federal and state agencies) at the district level in partnership with the local authorities.
  • We work with EPU to establish a District Level Task Force for the effective coordination of SDG localizing at the district level.
  • We network with agencies, grassroots communities and local level CSO-NGOs by organizing SDG awareness and capacity-building programs for district-level staff and volunteers.
