Addressing policy interactions and aligning actions between levels of government

This recommendation presents a set of eight principles for promoting policy coherence for sustainable development and draws on a set of responsive and adaptive tools to anticipate, assess and address domestic, transboundary and long-term impacts of policies.

The OECD Recommendation on Promoting Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development is the culmination of more than 20 years of lessons learnt in promoting policy coherence. As a joint proposal from the Development Assistance Committee and the Public Governance Committee, the Recommendation draws on the DAC peer reviews as well as on country experiences in the PGC. It responds to the growing demand by OECD Members and non-Members to deal with the ‘how’ of coherent 2030 Agenda implementation.
