Year of approval of the SD strategy and updates

Ireland’s first Sustainable Development Goals National Implementation Plan was published in 2018. It provided a framework for Ireland to work towards implementing the SDGs, including through the support of national policies, which contribute to meeting the Goals, and the facilitation of multi-stakeholder participation.

Ireland’s Second SDG National Implementation Plan 2022-2024 was published on 5 October 2022. It was developed in collaboration with all Government Departments, key stakeholders, and based on input from two public consultation processes. The new Plan builds on the structures and mechanisms set out in the first Sustainable Development Goals National Implementation Plan.

It sets out Ireland’s SDG implementation strategy for 2022-2024 and forms part of a series of consecutive Implementation Plans, each building on the previous iteration, to work towards achieving the SDGs

Type of SD strategy

The overarching national governance, coordination and monitoring framework for the SDGs is set out in this document. The detailed policy approaches to progress individual SDGs and targets are addressed in relevant national policies, as captured in the SDG Policy map.
