Dissemination of the Sustainable Development Goals in the Regions of the Russian Federation: Readiness Inspection

Galina Menshikova, Alexandr Soshnev, Svetlana Evstratchik

Abstract

The development of SDG ideas is significant not only as the implementation of the intention to achieve balanced development but also as a test of the readiness of state and regional systems to be adequate to modern management requirements, including the openness of information. Purpose of the article: to assess the readiness of the Russian regions for the transition to new management criteria, for which three tasks have been set. The first is to show the general process of transition from sustainable development in Russia, including its regions, to the SDGs. The second is to present a monitoring system for evaluating regional processes related to sustainable development. The third is to compare the current system of indicators with the one recommended by the UN. The theoretical basis is the research that is at the intersection of the theories of information openness and social responsibility of the government as a reflection of patron-agency relations. The authors chose the Results-oriented public administration approach (Eisenstadt and Runiger, 1980), (Lindberg Steffan, 2013), (Ugur and Erdogan, 2007), (APJ, 2010), (Yigitcanlar et al., 2019), seen as a manifestation of Good Governance. Three conclusions can be drawn from the study. First, the regions of the Russian Federation (as a whole) are not yet ready for the implementation of the SDGs. Second, a system of experts has developed and monitors trends related to the SDGs: quality of life, level of environmental safety, etc. Third - the system of indicators used to assess the sustainability of regions (cities), reflects the lack of a developed information base and indirectly fixes the lack of political will of the leaders to orient management towards economic, social, and environmental results. So far, in Russia, loyalty to the higher management is valued higher than the development of the economy and the growth of the quality of people's life.
