Revision of the National Sustainable Development Strategy
The concept of Sustainable Development allows a nation to plan, implement and monitor the progress of society towards the accomplishment of long-term goals, to accommodate the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to satisfy their own needs.
In 1997, only a few years after the historical event of the United Nations Environment and Development Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Romania started to elaborate its first Sustainable Development Strategy [by GD No. 305/1999] using a participatory mechanism. However, the resulting Strategy document did not foresee adequate mechanisms to monitor its implementation and periodic revision.

It will capitalize on the experience accumulated by the UNDP during the formulation of the first National Strategy for Sustainable Development (1997-1999). It will also capitalize on UNDP’s successful project Building Capacities to Implement Local Agenda 21 in Romania, as it may contribute a significant input to the implementation of sustainable development principles at the local and regional level.
The main objective of the project is to review and update Romania’s Strategy for Sustainable Development in line with the objectives of the Renewed EU Sustainable Development Strategy.
