To ask the Scottish Government how it will contribute to the UK Government's Voluntary National Review on the Sustainable Development Goals.


Answered by Derek Mackay (30/10/2018):

Scottish Government is engaging with stakeholders in Scotland and with the Department for International Development (DfID) to ensure Scotland’s approach to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is reflected in the Voluntary National Review process. Scottish Government and DfID officials attended a workshop held by SDG Network Scotland on 16 October as part of this engagement.

The National Performance Framework (NPF) is Scotland’s key mechanism to deliver the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The NPF and the Global Goals share the same spirit of ambition to encourage the transformational change necessary to tackle the most challenging issues facing our societies and planet. The SDGs have been embedded into the NPF by mapping the goals to the outcomes and aligning the indicators where appropriate and possible. The NPF reflects the partnership principle underpinning the 2030 agenda.
