Advocacy ________


Coalition 2030 is calling for responsibility for the Sustainable Development Goals to move to the Department of the Taoiseach – from the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications – so that the SDGs are aligned with other national priorities that have cross-Departmental aims (eg. food poverty and the national wellbeing framework). The Secretary General of the Department of the Taoiseach should have responsibility for the SDGs, similar to how the Shared Island Initiative currently sits within the Department of Foreign Affairs. As part of this move, the Government should appoint an independent Future Generations Commissioner, and commit to tagging all budgetary decisions to the SDGs.

Oireachtas Committees

Oireachtas Committees shadow government departments, and as such have an important role in the effective monitoring and oversight of SDG implementation and policy coherence.

On July 30th 2020, a motion was approved that sets out that each select Committee must address ‘progress on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals set out in the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ as part of its work programme. We campaign for Ministers, Departments, and public bodies to provide information on progress on relevant SDG targets as well as their plans to meet said targets when presenting to Oireachtas Committees, and for the Committees to report annually on their department’s SDG progress.
