ABSTRACT

The research study have conducted investigative study of the UN


Sustainable Development Goals and the localization of these goals in Baguio City
and La Trinidad to evaluate the welfare of the local stakeholders and to further
strengthen the structural mechanisms involved in the implementation of these
sustainable development goals since this UN-formulated development framework
addresses different aspects of human development. The researchers adhered to
the qualitative research design in investigating the localization strategies of
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by the two local government
units namely the City Government of Baguio and the Municipal Government of
La Trinidad which are located in the Province of Benguet.

Findings suggest that localization of the United Nations Sustainable


Development Goals is best achieved when there is the presence of strong
institutional collaboration and competent local legislators whose functions must
conform to the officials primary attribution. Effectiveness of the two local
government units were also assessed and it reveals that both local government
units are most effective in localizing the SDG goals focusing on poverty reduction,
infrastructure development, economic vitality and sustainable communities.
