Prime Minister Nicolae- Ionel Ciucă chaired the first 2022 meeting of the Interdepartmental Committee for Sustainable Development

Prime Minister Nicolae Ciucă convened a meeting of the Interdepartmental Committee for Sustainable Development today at Victoria Palace to analyze the state of the implementation of the 2030 National Strategy for the Sustainable Development of Romania.

A set of national sustainable development indicators was approved during the meeting.

"Beyond institutions and legislation specific to the governmental activity, sustainable development is especially about the quality of life, about people. To attain what we have set for ourselves, we need vision, strategies, and action plans put into practice through an inter-institutional network and correlated with other two future anchors: implementation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan and Romania’s accession to the OECD, the powerful economic organization. The monitoring and reporting system developed through the Department for Sustainable  Development’s actions helps us act effectively and have a clearer picture including in terms of the impact of reforms and internationally funded projects, which is very important especially given that the investments we will support in the next period from the National Recovery and Resilience Plan and the 2021 -2027 European financial exercise are at a record level for Romania”, stated Prime Minister Nicolae Ciucă.

The Interdepartmental Committee for Sustainable Development was established at the Department for Sustainable Development’s initiative, as part of the institutional framework for implementing the Sustainable Development Strategy approved in 2018.  The Head of the Department for Sustainable Development, State Advisor László Borbély, reiterated the importance of monitoring indicators and achieving data-driven public policies.

"Romania is one of the states that has taken decisive steps to implement the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. The inter-institutional framework we established is appreciated by prestigious international organizations such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the United Nations, which awarded us last year for innovation and effective public administration. Indeed, we still have many gaps to bridge in terms of the values of certain indicators, such as in the education area where the early dropout rate is 15%, almost double the European average. In other fields, for instance, the share of renewable energy in the final consumption is at approximately 25%, a few percentage points above the European average of 22%. It is essential to have a clear picture of where we stand, to set our goals and measure the impact of our actions so that we can have a sustainable present and future," stated state advisor László Borbély.

The following topics were also on the meeting agenda: ·

  • The Romanian Code of Sustainability – a reporting tool for companies after the German model that supports users in search of best practices in the field of sustainability·
  • The postgraduate training and professional development programme for the "sustainable development expert" occupation will continue. 150 people will complete the postgraduate course this autumn, and we aim to meet through the National Recovery and Resilience Plan the target of 2000 trained people by 2026.·
  • The national circular economy strategy is to be adopted by late September.
