As sustainable development becomes increasingly important to the economic success and social well-being of any government at any level, the effective use and protection of natural resources has increased. Local governments are at the forefront of sustainability policy development in many ways. This study investigates the Citizens' satisfaction with the role of the development plan in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in Najran region of Saudi Arabia. We use the principal component analysis (PCA) in items and a linear regression model to explain the sustainable development perception of respondents. We find that there is a positive correlation between the role of the development plan in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and the variable representing the sustainable development priorities, water, education and protecting rights for future generations. This study is beneficial for local policymakers in adopting strategies that lead to sustainable development in Najran region.
