National Implementation of 2030 Agenda for SD

  Montenegro

 

 

The Government of Montenegro is in the process of revision of existing National Strategy of Sustainable Development (NSSD). Namely, the first National Strategy of Sustainable Development of Montenegro adopted in 2007 was a step towards making an effort to materialize and make concrete the declarative commitment of Montenegro to be an ecological state. Since its adoption, the NSSD has been revised in the evaluation process in its part containing the Action Plan when a number of goals, measures and related indicators were revised, which was done in accordance with the reports on implementation and progress made by other programmes, and also in accordance with their results that had been achieved in Montenegro in the meantime. Since the time-frame for implementation of the Action Plan of this Strategy has expired and since many changes have taken place in Montenegro in the meantime, particularly in terms of reforms related to EU integration and harmonization of national legislation with the EU Acquis, and also given that new sustainable development programmes and initiatives have been launched at the national and international levels, conditions are in place for revision of the NSSD which needs to be harmonized with the new policies and strategies, especially global intergovernmental process of defining Post 2015 Agenda.  

 

The process of development of the new NSSD was initiated after Rio+20 Conference. Drafting process is coordinated and technically supervised by the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism, i.e. it is supervised by the National Council for Sustainable Development, climate Changes and Integrated Coastal Zone Management. The Platform for NSSD 2015-2020 has been developed, but it was identified that additional researches/analysis were needed and it influenced redefining of dynamics and methodology of further revision of the NSSD for the period after 2015. The National Council has approved redefined Outline which has seven chapters and defines following questions:

 

1.    Why do we revise the NSSD MNE?

2.    In what way are policies relevant for sustainable development implemented?

3.    International framework that is relevant for development of the NSSD MNE for the period after 2015 in the context of identifying needs and priorities of sustainable development in Montenegro in the coming period

4.    Methodology for developing the NSSD MNE for the period after 2015

5.    Vision of and guidelines on sustainable development of Montenegro (NSSD MNE for the period after 2015)

6.    Priority directions and related general sustainable development goals of Montenegro (NSSD MNE for the period after 2015)

7.    Priority topics and matters related to sustainable development in Montenegro for the period after 2015

8.    Action Plan

9.    Management Plan for Implementation of the NSSD for the period after 2015

10.  Project Portfolio of the Action Plan

11.  Financing Sustainable Development Policy

 

The draft of the new NSSD has been prepared, but it is also important to include results of ongoing global process of Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals which will shape national policies on sustainable development. NSSD will define the dynamic for implementation of the plan for SDGs, related target and indicators, successive integration into national statistical and monitoring and reporting system  in a way to enable full harmonization with SDG platform until 2020 and establish the NSSD implementation monitoring based on SDGs in 2021. It is expected that NSSD will be adopted by the Government by the end of June 2016.
