Implementation of the 2030 Agenda in the European Union: Constructing an EU approach to Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development
As part of a broader initiative, this paper aims to contribute to the reflection on the early experiences of implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a focus on ‘Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development’ (PCSD). The paper is one of a collection of case studies covering:
- A number of OECD country experiences including the Netherlands (by World Resources Institute), Sweden (by Stockholm Environment Institute), South Korea (By Korea Economic Institute) and Germany (by the German Development Institute)
- Three cross-cutting studies looking into extending the boundaries of policy coherence for sustainable development (by the European Environment Agency), the transition from Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) to PCSD and lessons learnt (by the OECD) and this present reflection on the European Union’s approach to policy coherence.
