Mechanisms of Horizontal Integration


The National Commission for Sustainable Development (NCSD), established in 2000, includes representatives of the various national ministries and is chaired by the Prime Minister.  The NCSD plays an important role for the horizontal coordination. However the operation of the NCSD has been brought to a standstill.

Policy coherence is presented in the NSDS as one of the main principles for SD implementation: SD objectives and tasks must be implemented by incorporating environmental, economic and social development objectives into strategies of different economic sectors and the development of regions.
