Mechanisms of Horizontal Integration


The work of the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development (FNCSD) is outlined and prepared by an inter-ministerial Secretariat, which operates as a network and which convenes 8–10 times a year. The Secretariat is composed of about 20 members from different ministries, each taking the lead in preparing themes within their area of expertise. The Secretary General and Deputy Secretary General of the Secretariat oversee the practical arrangements and manage funding for the National Commission’s work.

All relevant Government ministries were involved in the preparations for the 2006 National Strategy for Sustainable Development, the 2013 Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development and the updating process of Society’s Commitment in 2016.
