Belarus sustainable development strategy 2035 to be ready by year-end

MINSK, 24 January (BelTA) – Belarus will draw up a national strategy for sustainable development till 2035 by the end of 2019, Belarus Prime Minister Sergei Rumas said at the first National Forum on Sustainable Development in Minsk on 24 January, BelTA has learned.

"We made up a plan of action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and integrated this work into the strategic and policy documents of the country. The national strategy for sustainable development till 2035 will be drawn up this year. The document will be a link between the priorities of sustainable development at the national level and global goals in this field,” Sergei Rumas said.

According to the prime minister, the issues of implementing the UN agenda and achieving the SDGs are an important government priority and are in the center of attention of the Council of Ministers.

Work is currently underway on a number of strategic documents in Belarus. Their implementation will help promote the sustainable development of forestry and tourism and harmonize the national standards with international ones.

"Taking into account the sustainable development agenda, we have already adjusted about half of the state programs. Moreover, starting from 1 February this year, the work on any legal act will include a comprehensive and objective analysis of its impact and compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals. The government will issue such a resolution in the nearest future,” Sergei Rumas said.
