Basic Information


Year of approval of the
SD strategy and updates

The first NSDS of Cyprus was approved by the Council of Ministers in November 2007 (full document only available in Greek, summary in English). The NSDS includes the main topics and subject areas of the renewed EU SDS.

Cyprus has reviewed its National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS) that has been prepared within the EU Sustainable Development Strategy framework. The revision process was scheduled to be completed by the end of 2009, however, due to some input delays from a number of departments and organizations, the reviewed NSDS was finally approved by the Council of Ministers in October 2010. The reviewed NSDS introduces more sustainable development indicators, that contribute to measuring the on-going progress.
