Evaluation and Review
In 2019, Switzerland commissioned an external evaluation of its SD
strategy. The results of the evaluation were published in 2019 (click here for
the evaluation report in German with summaries in English, French and Italian).
Switzerland developed a method to assess political projects from a
sustainable development perspective: Sustainability Assessment: Conceptual framework. In the
course of this framework, sustainability assessment guidelines for federal
agencies and other interested parties have been developed. These guidelines
have been drawn up to help sustainability assessments to be carried out as
efficiently as possible and in accordance with standard principles. They set
out a procedure in nine steps and provide additional support in the form of a
Sustainability Assessment Excel Tool that enables the relevance of an
initiative to be reviewed from the sustainable development perspective and
allows its impacts to be recorded in outline terms. The guidelines are
available for download in English | German | French | Italian
In addition to their coordinating activities and representative role, the
Delegates submit an annual report to the Federal Council on the implementation
of the 2030 Agenda.
