This chapter proposes a Multi-level Action Framework for implementing the Sustainable Development Goals. It suggests that there should be three Action Principles, namely to govern sustainable development goals across levels and actors; to target drivers of change at the appropriate level; and to ensure horizontal and vertical coherence in action. It also argues that there should be three Action Mechanisms that should be put in place, namely developing human capacities, building institutional frameworks, and designing appropriate interventions. It demonstrates these principles and mechanisms through an application to the water governance field.

Keywords:   Multi-level governance, Principles, coherence, water governance, SDGs
