By virtue of Article 14 of the Sustainable Development Act, Cap. 521, the Competent Authority is also responsible for compiling a yearly report delineating the policies and measures implemented by the Maltese Government to mainstream Sustainable Development across all areas.
This report is then presented to Parliament by the responsible Minister with the aim to continue raising awareness on sustainable development. The yearly report is an important source as it gives accountability on the progress achieved in the field of sustainable development while serving as a guideline on the areas which would need to be improved.
As from 2017 onwards, the activities and measures undertaken by the Government are being integrated with the Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are goals that Malta along with other countries has committed itself to implement and achieve by 2030.
