Currently Ireland’s SDGs ministry is housed in the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications. In order to demonstrate the political ambition required for SDG achievement, the Department of the Taoiseach should have overall responsibility for SDG oversight and implementation.
We call on the Government to:
Move the SDG Unit to the Department of An Taoiseach.
Ensure Government departments are held accountable for the delivery of the SDGs at target level.
Mandate Government ministers to report annually on their department’s progress towards the Goals to both houses of the Oireachtas and their respective Committees.
