Workshop Overview and Recommendations
Abstract:Achieving the goals of sustainable development depends to a large extent on governance practices, particularly the effective implementation of national sustainable development strategies (NSDS). The essence of these strategies is to integrate government decision‐making in the economic, environmental and social spheres and to consider the longer‐term implications of all policies. The Stockholm Workshop aimed at developing recommendations for the true "institutionalisation" of sustainable development in order to embed the concept in government operations for the long‐term and reduce the vulnerability of sustainable development aims to shorter‐term political objectives.
