Key messages

  • Switzerland is committed to promote Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development (PCSD).  A monitoring and reporting system is indispensable to guide this effort and to track and report progress.
  • As a pilot study, this paper proposes a structured and thorough approach, with a focus on three Swiss PCSD priority areas: food security, migration and development, and illicit financial flows.
  • This paper proposes an analytical framework for a consistent analysis of government policies from a PCSD perspective. To measure these policies, it looks at their own normative and political ambitions, in a pragmatic manner and based on indicators likely to be valid for several years.
  • The main focus of the analysis is on the Government’s Annual Work Plan and its related Annual Report to the Parliament
