The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications (DECC) have launched the online public consultation to assist with the development of the next Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) National Implementation Plan.
The consultation will be open for submission for an 8-week period, from Friday 16 July to Friday 10 September 2021. Please find the link to the consultation here:
Work is commencing on the development of the next SDG National Implementation Plan which will set out arrangements for interdepartmental coordination and governance, stakeholder engagement and actions needed for further implementation of Agenda 2030.
A fundamental objective of developing the next National Implementation Plan is listening to and integrating the voices of stakeholders and this is why DECC 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 DECC want to hear from as many people as possible to:
- i)Assess the awareness of, and engagement with, the SDGs;
- ii)Establish general opinion on progress made to-date; and
iii) 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.
