Government Report on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Abstract Original Language:
This report presents the Government’s plans regarding the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in Finland. The key aim is a carbon-neutral, resource-wise and competent Finland where non-discrimination and equality is secured by 2030. The 2030 Agenda is a global action programme which guides Finland and other countries to promote sustainable development on a long-term basis. The aim is to turn the global development into a path where human welfare and human rights, economic prosperity and stable societies can be secured in an environmentally sustainable manner. Extreme poverty is to be eradicated. In line with the Government priorities, the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in Finland builds on two themes, as well as three policy principles: long-term action and force for change, consistency, and global partnership, ownership and involvement. The report also describes the monitoring and evaluation procedures. The Government implementation plan is based on the Society's Commitment to Sustainable Development, which is Finland's strategic framework for sustainability work and provides an implementation mechanism for anyone in Finland to participate in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
