    Programa ADELANTE: Cooperación Triangular

    Mirada Ciudadana trabaja con 17 municipios del MERCOSUR, fortaleciendo sus capacidades institucionales y su gobernanza con el fin de mejorar su eficiencia y lograr así políticas públicas de calidad enfocadas a la reducción de las brechas de desigualdad. De esta manera, no solo contribuimos directamente al ODS 11 (ciudades sostenibles) y al ODS 16 (instituciones eficaces), sino que tenemos un fuerte impacto también en el ODS 10 (reducción de las desigualdades) y en todos los demás, en la medida que los gobiernos locales son actores clave para el logro del conjunto de la Agenda.

    MAIN CONTRIBUTION, FROM THE PROJECT'S THEMATIC PERSPECTIVE

    Goal 11.3

    By 2030, enhance inclusive and sustainable urbanization and capacity for participatory, integrated and sustainable human settlement planning and management in all countries

    Justification:

    The MIRADA CIUDADANA project contributes to Target 11.3 through training and technical assistance to all participating municipalities in inclusive and sustainable urbanization and participatory, integrated and sustainable planning and management.

    Justification:

    Goal 16.6

    Develop effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels

    Justification:

    The MIRADA CIUDADANA project contributes to Target 16.6 by improving governance for the implementation of quality public policies in the 17 participating Mercosur municipalities, promoting in particular transparency through the active participation of citizens under the pillars of Open Government.

    Indicator 16.6.1

    Primary government expenditures as a proportion of original approved budget, by sector (or by budget codes or similar)

    Justification:

    It is possible to measure the impact of this indicator in the municipalities of Cerro Largo (9), since there is a system that allows for an annual evaluation of the comparison between what has been planned and what has been executed. The objective is to have, by the end of 2019, this information in the municipalities of Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay to assess the feasibility of monitoring all partners.

    Goal 16.7

    Ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels

    Justification:

    The MIRADA CIUDADANA project contributes to Target 16.7 through the promotion of inclusive and participatory measures in the 17 municipalities in which it is being implemented, with citizen participation and decentralization being the pillars of the project.

    Justification:

    INDICATOR NOT RELEVANT FOR THE PROJECT

    Goal 16.10

    Ensure public access to information and protect fundamental freedoms, in accordance with national legislation and international agreements

    Justification:

    The MIRADA CIUDANA project contributes to Target 16.10 by promoting policies of access to public information, accountability, transparency and citizen participation, and thus training public officials and senior officials as well as civil society to know their rights and access services and information of interest.

    Indicator 16.10.2

    Number of countries that adopt and implement constitutional, statutory and/or policy guarantees for public access to information

    Justification:

    As Municipalities rely on the laws of each country on the subject, Mirada Ciudadana aims at encouraging compliance with this legislation.

    Goal 8.9

    By 2030, devise and implement policies to promote sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products

    Justification:

    The MIRADA CIUDADANA project contributes to Target 10.2 through the strengthening of the governance and management capacities of all municipalities aimed at promoting social, economic and political inclusion of people, reducing inequality gaps and correcting inequalities.

    Indicator 10.2.1

    Proportion of people living below 50 per cent of median income, by age, sex and persons with disabilities

Our objective is to strengthen the municipalities' capacities, by training referents in each of them to lead and make employment policies sustainable in each territory, with an emphasis on women, young people and the most vulnerable population.

    Justification:

    INDICATOR NOT RELEVANT FOR THE PROJECT

    Goal 5.1

    End all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere

    Justification:

    The MIRADA CIUDADANA project contributes to Target 5.1 by raising awareness and including a gender perspective in all its actions so that positive actions against discrimination towards women and girls are included in all municipalities. This issue was invisible and practically absent from municipal planning.

    Justification:

    Goal 5.5
