Managing Cross-Sectoral Coordination in Accelerating the Sustainable Development Agenda

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Building on my previous editorial notes on sustainable development themes, I would like to expand our discussion on how the concept of cross-sectoral coordination can be a booster for the sustainable development agenda. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established actions to end poverty, improve health and education, and promote prosperity and well-being by considering environmental sustainability, which requires value changes, institutional changes, and cultural adjustment. Managing cross-sectoral interests with coordinated aims, strategies, and instruments is essential to overcome complex problems and develop more comprehensive solutions in accelerating SDG programs. Creating a more integrative manner to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of public policies are key concepts for optimizing the benefits and impact of development outcomes. This policy integration and coordination is crucial to enhancing sustainable development programs, which balance economic advancement, sustainable ecosystem management, and environmental protection; therefore, it requires an inter-sector approach and coordinating mechanisms for all programs and projects.
