National Implementation of 2030 Agenda for SD

  Austria

 

Austria has launched the implementation of the SDGs with a Decision by the Austrian Council of Ministers in January 2016. In line with the universal, integrated and interrelated nature of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Decision of the Council of Ministers emphasizes a mainstreaming approach: The sectoral ministries will utilize their existing multi-stakeholder strategy and programming processes to take the SDGs into account in the respective national policy frameworks. Thereby, well-established structures of numerous national policy frameworks will be deployed for the SDG implementation.

 

Additionally, the SDG Focal Points of each Ministry teamed up in an inter-ministerial working group co-chaired by the Federal Chancellery and the Ministry of Foreign affairs – with particular involvement of the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management and the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy. This working group accelerates information sharing on the Agenda 2030 and provides guidance on national reporting.

 

In March 2017, the working group published the Outline 2016 - Contributions to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the Austrian Federal Ministries (German). The Outline 2016 provides information on the general approach taken, the national policy processes and on the international dimension of the SDG implementation in Austria. It provides a basis for further discussions with Parliament, civil society and other stakeholders.

 

Further work is planned on the development of an indicator framework compatible with the Eurostat guidance as well as involving all levels of state and the private sector to support the SDGs
