Review of Sustainable Development Policy

The European Commission has issued its 2009 review of the European Union strategy for sustainable development.

The main priorities outlined in the report are:

– contributing to a rapid shift to a low-carbon and low-input economy, based on energy and resource-efficient technologies and sustainable transport and shifts towards sustainable consumption behaviour;

– intensifying environmental efforts for the protection of biodiversity, water and other natural resources;

– promoting social inclusion;

– strengthening the international dimension of sustainable development and intensifying efforts to combat global poverty.
