Our Sustainable Future has been developed as a whole-of-Government undertaking. Its implementation will require an active and central Government driven approach.

While Ireland’s political and administrative systems are relatively centralised by international standards, local government has a crucial role to play in translating national policies into tangible practical actions that can help to deliver the SDGs at the local and community level. Increasing local government engagement with the SDGs is an important task during the lifetime of the SDG National Implementation Plan 2018-2020.
