Policy for global development in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda Skr. 2017/18:146

Published Updated

In the communication, the Government reports on, for example, its work on the policy for global development (PGD) during the years 2016–2017 within the scope of the 2030 Agenda and its Global Goals. The 17 goals and 169 targets are universal and indivisible and integrate the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.


A more in-depth report is provided in the communication regarding
several areas in which the Government has expressed a particular ambition during the period. Within these thematic areas, the Government also reports potential conflicts of objectives and interests and how potential for improved harmonisation can be utilised. These areas are:

– feminist foreign policy
– sustainable business
– sustainable consumption and production
– climate and the sea
– flight of capital and tax flight

Finally, the Government establishes that Sweden shall be a leader in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda both nationally and internationally, and that PGD shall continue to be a key tool in the implementation.
