A Test of the EU’s Integrity Towards the 2030 Agenda: The Status of Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development
This new CONCORD report, “A Test of the EU’s Integrity Towards the 2030 Agenda: The Status of Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development”, tracks existing PC(S)D mechanisms in Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Italy, Czech Republic, Austria, and the European Commission. The focus is particularly on mechanisms that have been, or could be, put in place in line with the SDG indicator 17.14.1.
The study pays special attention to the objective of addressing trade-offs or negative spillover effects of domestic policies in the EU or its Member States, on the Global South. The goal of the report is to encourage EU Member States and the European Commission to commit to, implement and report on PC(S)D by reinforcing or creating mechanisms for it, and ensure that the focus on countries in the Global South is not lost, especially in times of COVID recovery.
