Year of approval of the SD strategy and updates

Iceland does not have a National Sustainable Development Strategy, but uses Agenda 2030 as an umbrella for essential national strategies. Iceland has also focused on integrating the 17 Sustainable Development Goals into the five-year financial plans. By linking the goals to government policies, the government wants the implementation to be more specific and provide better investment opportunities.

Type of SD strategy

Iceland has set 65 priority targets that are implemented through targets set for various policy areas in the government’s five-year fiscal strategy and various other government policies and programmes.

Lead ministry/institution in the SD strategy process

The Prime Minister´s Office and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
