Public consultation on the second Sustainable Development Goals National Implementation Plan
Work is commencing on the development of the next Sustainable Development Goal National Implementation Plan which will set out arrangements for interdepartmental coordination and governance, stakeholder engagement and actions needed for further implementation of Agenda 2030.
The 2030 Agenda encourages countries to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into planning and policy, on both a national and international level. As a whole-of-government initiative overseen by the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, each Minister has responsibility for implementing individual SDG targets related to their functions.
A fundamental objective of developing the next National Implementation Plan is listening to and integrating the voices of stakeholders and this is why we are launching the consultation process at the outset of developing the Plan. The approach is also reflective of the fact that the SDGs belong to everybody and that Governments need to work in partnership with society to achieve the Goals.
As part of the consultation process we want to hear from as many people as possible to:
- Assess the awareness of, and engagement with, the SDGs;
- Establish general opinion on progress made to-date; and
- Seek feedback and recommendations to inform the drafting and development of the next National Implementation Plan
In addition a sector-specific section has been included to determine the activity and support requirements in different sectors.
