Mechanisms of Vertical Integration


National — sub-national linkages

Generally, the NSDS is understood as ‘umbrella strategy’. There are many sectoral strategies dealing with issues addressed in the strategy and for their implementation local authorities are important, e.g. environmental issues, such as air, water, waste, sea management, etc. In this context, special seminars are held for local authorities on NSDS issues and implementation, including awareness raising and knowledge building workshops on special issues, such as SD education.

EU linkages

The priorities and objectives of the EU Strategy for Sustainable Development (EU SDS)are integrated into the NSDS.
