Johannesburg: Denmark’s National Strategy for Sustainable Development
What has happened since the World Summit in Johannesburg? What is Denmark doing to move from words to action and to ensure sustainable development? Many of the answers are provided in the publication “The World Summit in Johannesburg and Denmark’s National Strategy for Sustainable Development”.
The publication follows up on Denmark’s National Strategy for Sustainable Development in the wake of the Johannesburg Summit. The publication reports on areas where progress is accorded special priority by the Danish Government. These include climate change and renewable energy, international development, trade and environment, biodiversity, environment and health, and sustainable production and consumption.
The Danish Government has also published the first update of Denmark’s indicators for sustainable development. The indicators illustrate the development in relation to important targets or activities in Denmark’s National Strategy for Sustainable Development, “A shared future – balanced development”. The indicators are updated annually.
The indicators fall into two sets:
- An overall set of key indicators, comprising 14 indicators published in a printed publication.
- A detailed, specific set of 90 indicators, addressing individual action areas and describing developments and results in relation to some of the Strategy’s targets and activities.
