The implementation of the 2030 Agenda in Brazil has shifted from governance without a government to a complex governance design with a social dimension. An overview of the Brazilian strategic adherence to the 2030 Agenda indicates that non-state actors triggered a bottom-up polycentric process of SDG implementation. The results point to the strength of the SDGs in directing local speeches and actions, promoting institutional integration and inducing an innovative network constituted by an architecture of social governance made by local governments, parliaments and civil society actors.
