National SDG Coordinator heads an inter-ministerial working group of SDG focal
points to support integration of the SDGs into relevant policies and stimulate
government action. The network also prepares the annual SDG progress report, addresses
challenges and shares best practices. An annual meeting at DG or Director level
serves to provide guidance on SDG-activities based on the progress report.
Since 2019, the national assessment
framework for new laws and policies (IAK) is ‘SDG-proof’. This
change requests law- and policymakers to assess the effects of their
legislation on the SDGs. Additionally, quality checks on the effects of
legislation on developing countries and gender equality have been added to the
framework. These adjustments will create more transparency on the contributions
of new laws and policies to achieving the SDGs.
