For countries to be able to achieve the ambitious results of the 2030 Agenda, transformational changes in the way national institutions make decisions, devise policies, legislate and report on sustainable development issues are needed. Access to accurate information and knowledge, cross-sectoral collaboration and coordination both within and across institutions, as well as more inclusive mechanism are necessary. The attainment of environmental goals is a pre-condition to achieving the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). Therefore, countries need to be well equipped in understanding the environmental dimension of the goals and their linkages with other commitments; they also need to be able to translate this understanding into concrete measures to realize environmental objectives in an integrated manner.
