Mechanisms of Horizontal Integration


The Sustainable Development Directorate within MSDEC  has the objective to ensure that Government ministries and other state bodies carry out their responsibilities in implementing the NSDS and other implementation measures which originate from the Sustainable Development Act.

The Competent Authority sought and obtained approval for the creation of an ad hoc Directorate for Sustainable Development so as to strengthen the organisational set-up and provide a greater impetus to the sustainable development agenda.  The Directorate has been entrusted with the task of building and enhancing capacity both within MSDEC and also across the other Government Ministries to ensure effective mainstreaming of sustainable development parameters across Government policy making. The structure aims at providing the necessary components to facilitate sustainable development implementation across the board, particularly given the collective impetus each Ministry needs to make to ascertain the achievements of common objectives.
