Mechanisms of Horizontal Integration
The NSDS presents the three sustainable development pillars in separate
chapters in which the cross-sectoral issues are adequately covered. The Action
Plan for NSDS implementation is designed in the same way. It presents all three
sustainable development pillars in separate chapters and defines in detail
all the measures and activities (mostly implemented by the Ministry), as well
as the cost assessment and the sources of funding. The Action Plan monitors
other sectoral strategies in Serbia, in the goal of integrating different
sectoral strategies’ goals and approaches with the NSDS in order to avoid
parallel structures when coordinating the implementation.
The constitutional session of the Sustainable Development Council, which
represents an inter-ministerial coordination body, was held in January of 2008.
The Council is chaired by the Deputy Prime Minster for European Integrations,
and its members are several ministers and representatives of ministries in
their role of competent institutions for the implementation of the NSDS, as
well as the representatives of the Secretariat of “Sustainable Development“ project
and of three NGOs. The basic goal of the Council is to give recommendations
on the NSDS development and implementation process as well as to contribute
to the coordinated implementation of the NSDS by different sectors.
