National Implementation of 2030 Agenda for SD

  France

 

 

France has promoted sustainable development since the adoption of its first sustainable development strategy in 2003 and the appointment of an Interministerial Delegate for Sustainable Development under the authority of the Prime Minister and located between the Ministry of Environment, which is in charge of Sustainable Development.

 

Since 2008, the Interministerial Delegate for Sustainable Development is also Commissioner General for Sustainable Development with a teal of 500 people.

 

The implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals builds on and strengthens this institutional mechanism.

 

The Interministerial Delegate for Sustainable Development coordinates the work of every ministries in order to ensure a better horizontal coordination of public policies towards achieving the SDGs in very close relation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which is in charge of international solidarity.

 

Being as well the vice-Chair of the National Council for Ecological Transition (CNTE), the Interministerial Delegate for Sustainable Development ensures that the SDGs implementation is discussed between administrations and civil society’s organisations.

 

In order to launch the SDGs implementation in France, in view of the “Voluntary National Review” presented at the UN High Level Political Forum in 2016,  a broad consultation workshop was organised during the European Sustainable Development Week gathering representatives from civil society’s organisations from every areas : representatives from the National Council for Ecological Transition (CNTE) involved in environmental issues, from the National Council for Development and International Solidarity (CNDSI) involved Development Aid, and representatives from the other areas of society, especially the educational and social areas.

 

The summary from the workshop, called " La synthèse des ateliers de lancement de la mise en oeuvre nationale des objectifs de développement durable - Juin 2016"  is available in French at :

This broad consultation of stakeholders from every communities is to be perpetuated and sustained regularly.

 

After laying the groundwork with the report to the HLPF, the implementation action plan which is currently being drafted aims at

-          undertaking a diagnosis and gap analysis

-          co-elaborating the implementation action plan regarding public policies, paying special attention to interrelations between the objectives and targets, and defining national priorities, indicators and means of action

-          ensuring the follow-up and reporting at national and international levels

 

On the 30th of November 2016, the Interministerial Committee on International Cooperation and Development chaired by the Prime Minister confirmed the French commitment towards the implementation of the SDGs and of the Paris Climate Agreement
