NSDS was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers in December 2007. However on the 10th of July 2012 the Sustainable Development Act came into force.
Type of SD strategy
NSDS covers all three dimensions of SD but the Sustainable Development Act sets a strengthened framework to mainstream sustainable development across all levels of government.
Lead ministry/institution in
the SD strategy process
Responsibility for the coordination and implementation of the NSDS as specified within the Sustainable Development Act lies within the Ministry of Sustainable Development, the Environment and Climate Change (MSDEC), a task assigned by the Prime Minister in 2013. Since MSDEC became the Competent Authority for purposes of the same Act, the Ministry then immediately ensured that all the structures established by the Act were setup, together with the necessary administrative support.
