National Implementation of 2030 Agenda for SD
Following the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, the Federal
Council commissioned a comprehensive review of the status of implementation in
Switzerland, covering all policy sectors of the Federal Government. The baseline assessment covered all 169 SDG targets and
included both Switzerland’s domestic and foreign policy contributions. The
results indicate that the 2030 Agenda action areas are well embedded in federal
policies. At the same time, the survey also identified challenges for progressively
pursuing the Goals. This report forms the basis for Switzerland’s
National Review (VNR). Both documents serve as a status report by the Swiss
Confederation and provide a baseline to enable a targeted response to the
challenges facing the country.
In December 2018, The Federal Council reinforced the
Agenda's implementation with a new organizational structure within the federal
government. The creation of an interdepartmental '2030 Agenda Steering
Committee', and the appointment of two Delegates of the Federal Council for the
2030 Agenda are core elements of this. The new structure will fully anchor the
2030 Agenda within the federal administration, and the Agenda will continue to
be implemented as part of the sectoral policies of the individual federal
agencies and departments.
