Swedish strategy for sustainable development
Four strategic challenges have priority in the revised national strategy for sustainable development: building sustainable communities, encouraging good health on equal terms, meeting the demographic challenge, and encouraging sustainable growth.
"Strategic Challenges - a Further Elaboration of the Swedish Strategy for Sustainable Development" is an elaboration of the national strategy from 2004. The strategy covers all three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. The strategy proceeds from a long-term vision of sustainable development. The communication also deals with the international sustainable development effort, including UN initiatives and the EU's strategy in the area.
Four strategic challenges have priority:
- Building sustainable communities
- Encouraging good health on equal terms
- Meeting the demographic challenge
- Encouraging sustainable growth.
The revised strategy also presents a series of indicators for sustainable development, including 12 headline indicators.
