Have your say! Online public consultation on the draft OECD Recommendation on Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development


The OECD is seeking public comments on the draft Recommendation on Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development (PCSD).

The 2030 Agenda states that the Sustainable Development Goals are indivisible, and that they balance the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development through SDG Target 17.14, which calls on all countries to enhance policy coherence for sustainable development (PCSD).

Governments at all levels increasingly recognise the need to break out of institutional and policy silos to fully realise the benefits of synergistic actions across the SDGs. The 2030 Agenda, however, does not provide guidance on how to enhance policy coherence for the implementation of the SDGs.

To address this gap, the OECD has embarked on an inclusive process to update its 2010 Recommendation on Good Institutional Practices in Promoting Policy Coherence for Development and reflect the nature and principles of the 2030 Agenda. The draft Recommendation on PCSD aims to provide guidance that will help equip policy-makers and key stakeholders with the necessary institutional mechanisms and policy tools to accelerate progress towards the SDGs.
