Moldova 2030: mainstreaming sustainable development in the policy-making process

Project description

Title: Support to the Moldovan Government in the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda
Commissioned by: German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)​​​​​​​
Country: Republic of Moldova
Lead executing agency: State Chancellery of the Republic of Moldova​​​​​​​
Overall term: 2019 to 2023


The 2030 Agenda provides the framework for sustainable development for the Republic of Moldova. At the core of the 2030 Agenda are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to promote the conditions for a prosperous and inclusive society. Achieving the Goals requires bold and aspiring solutions to the existing common challenges. Given its transformative character, delivering on the 2030 Agenda poses a major challenge for most countries, and the Republic of Moldova is no exception.


The project is improving the requisite capabilities and processes in the Republic of Moldova thus supporting its implementation of the 2030 Agenda.


The following three mutually reinforcing outputs ensure the successful implementation of the project.

Output 1 – Planning: policy advice on sustainable development is provided to support the development and introduction of processes and tools to integrate the 2030 Agenda into national planning processes. These activities are guided by the “leave no-one behind” (LNOB) principle. Moreover, the project aims to empower authorities at the subnational level to fulfil their role in implementing the Agenda.

Output 2 – Monitoring: various actors receive support to improve their capabilities in the collection, processing and ultimately the utilisation of data required for effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The project also assists state actors in setting up an SDG database, accessible to various data users for evidence-based policymaking, monitoring and reporting.

Output 3 – Implementation: supporting innovative small-scale projects to foster the practical advancement and localisation of the 2030 Agenda in the Republic of Moldova. The project has set up the SDG Innovation Fund to contribute to the implementation of selected priorities of the 2030 Agenda.
