National Implementation of 2030 Agenda for SD



Iceland has set 65 priority targets that are implemented through targets set for various policy areas in the government’s five-year fiscal strategy and various other government policies and programmes. To improve efficiency and oversight in policy formulation and planning, it was decided to set priority targets. It is however important to note that the priority targets do not exclude work on implementing other targets.
