Tuesday, 18 August 2020
The National Strategy for Sustainable Development of the Republic of Croatia (NSSD) from 2009 will be revised in a way to present general political framework for implementing Agenda 2030.
In parallel, on operational level key challenges in implementing priority SDGs for Croatia are reflected in the National Development Strategy 2030 (NDS 2030), which will be adopted in the 2020. The NDS 2030 is an overarching strategic document of the Republic of Croatia for the period up to 2030, which identifies key challenges, goals and targets for sustainable development of the Republic of Croatia and shall form the foundation for shaping and implementing all public policies at the national and subnational level. The establishment of an integrated system of strategic planning will facilitate the vision of Croatia as an open and globally competitive country whose social and economic growth and development are based on sustainable development goals of the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, Directorate for multilateral and global affairs is national coordinator for Agenda 2030 and SDGs.
The Ministry of Environment and Energy, Service for Sustainable Development is responsible for drafting the National Strategy for Sustainable Development due to the Environmental Protection Act.
The Ministry for Regional development and EU funds is responsible for drafting the National Development Strategy 2030.
There is no single ministry responsible for the overall implementation of the 2030 Agenda the SDGs. Given the complexity of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, its inevitable impact on the overall social and economic development, there is a shared responsibility of all relevant ministries to be focused on the implementation of the specific goal/s and target/s in accordance with their specific competencies.
