Nachhaltige Entwicklungsziele der Vereinten Nationen, Umsetzung der Agenda 2030 in Österreich

Recommendations:

Zu den wesentlichsten Empfehlungen des RH zählten:

  • Die interministerielle Arbeitsgruppe sollte als nationales Lenkungsgremium zur Umsetzung der Agenda 2030 eingerichtet werden, um dadurch die Steuerung einer kohärenten gesamtösterreichischen Umsetzung zu gewährleisten. Zudem sollte geprüft werden, ob die Leitung der interministeriellen Arbeitsgruppe durch nur ein Bundesministerium wahrgenommen werden könnte.
  • Für die Umsetzung der nachhaltigen Entwicklungsziele wäre auf die Erstellung einer Nachhaltigkeitsstrategie mit einem strukturierten und kohärenten gesamtstaatlichen Mechanismus unter Einbeziehung der Länder und Gemeinden sowie der Zivilgesellschaft hinzuwirken.
  • Zum ehestmöglichen Zeitpunkt und in der Folge in regelmäßigen Abständen – mindestens einmal pro Legislaturperiode – sollte unter Einbeziehung der Länder und der Zivilgesellschaft an das "Hochrangige Politische Forum für Nachhaltige Entwicklung" der Vereinten Nationen berichtet werden.
  • Bei einer Novelle des Bundeshaushaltsgesetzes 2013 wäre darauf hinzuwirken, dass die verpflichtende Berücksichtigung der nachhaltigen Entwicklungsziele – analog zum Gleichstellungsziel – in den Wirkungszielen des Bundes verankert wird.

The most important recommendations of the ACA were the following:

  • The interministerial working group should be set up as a national steering body for the implementation of the 2030Agenda to manage a coherent, nationwide implementation. Furthermore, the responsible stakeholders should look into whether the interministerial working group could be chaired by one federal ministry only.
  • The responsible stakeholders should encourage the preparation of a sustainability strategy that contains a structured and coherent nationwide mechanism and takes into account the provinces, municipalities and the civil society.
  • Reporting to the "United Nations High–level Political Forum on Sustainable Development" should be ensured as early as possible and from then on periodically – at least once per legislative period – and include the provinces and the civil society.
  • As regards the amendment of the Federal Organic Budget Act 2013, the responsible stakeholders should encourage the legislators to embed the SDGs, in a mandatory way, – analogous to the equality target – in the outcome targets of the Federal Government.

Ces indicateurs devraient reposer sur un échantillon suffisamment large pour pouvoir être ventilés entre les régions.
  3. Les différents niveaux de pouvoir doivent considérer la stratégie nationale adaptée comme une vision commune dans laquelle s’inscrivent les plans stratégiques et autres engagements politiques en matière de développement durable.
  4. Dans le cadre de la préparation et de l’exécution de leur stratégie de développement durable, les différents niveaux de pouvoir doivent veiller à impliquer les citoyens et les parties prenantes pertinentes, de préférence de manière planifiée.
  5. Les pouvoirs publics doivent assurer, par niveau de pouvoir, une coordination et un suivi explicites des plans et des mesures stratégiques par rapport aux ODD. Ils doivent établir clairement les responsabilités de l’ensemble des acteurs publics.

The State of Implementation of Marine Environmental Protection Interventions to Achieve a Good Environmental Status by 2020

Executive summary:

The Audit  assessed the implementation in Italy of the provisions of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, that aims at achieving Good Environmental Status (GES) of the EU's marine waters by 2020 also according to the most recent SDG 14 of the UN Agenda 2030 which focuses on a sustainable use of the oceans, of the seas and of marine resources in general.

Italy has substantially fulfilled compliance with the deadlines concerning the activities of the first six-year cycle (the first phase of the aforementioned Directive), especially through activities coordinated by the Ministry of the Environment and Protection of Land and Sea in partnership with the in-house company SOGESID and assisted by a Technical Committee composed of representatives of the coastal regions.

From 2011 to 2019, the resources allocated to the implementation of the interventions amounted to 76.1 million Euro, of which 72.1 million were assigned and 53.4 million were actually paid. The coastal regions received part of the resources and then transferred an important part of them to local levels of government.

In order to assess the sound use of public resources, the Audit examined the Reports related to the activities implemented to protect the marine environment of the area. It focused also on the activities aimed at removing telluric pollution due to pollutants and waste from inland waters, illicit fishing and marine litter.

The Audit stressed the positive results achieved and recommended for a constant monitoring of the effective implementation of the measures during the second six-year cycle of the Marine Strategy.

 

Recommendations:

The Court of Auditors recommended that future efforts should be focused on:

  • a greater involvement of local and regional Authorities considering the direct interest of local Communities in the protection of the marine environment;
  • more appropriate measures aimed at fully implementing the programs and at ensuring their accomplishment in the use of the allocated funds;
  • enabling cooperation with other Institutions in policy-making in order with the aim of fulfilling environmental legislation;
  • implementing auditing activities of marine protected areas despite the gradual decrease in the amount of funds; 
  • removing the remaining environmental factors in order to achieve environmental results: telluric pollution due to pollutants and waste from inland waters, illicit fishing, marine litter.

 

Tools/Manuals/Methodologies:

The Court of Auditors does not use or published any Manual in performing its audit function.

The performance audit is performed following its initial planning and the consequent exchange of information and relationship developed between the Audit Chamber and Internal Audit offices.

On an annual basis, the United Chambers for audit approve the general audit plan, which provides instructions, policies, strategies and criteria to the Central and Regional Audit Chambers in order to perform their specific audits.

Moreover, continuous and direct exchanges between the Court and the public bodies are deemed fundamental for carrying out performance audits. Accordingly, the Court receives and exchanges information and opinions of the auditees before completing its report to the Parliament. It is deemed necessary to have a continuous information exchange between the audited administrations and the Audit Chambers. Before submitting the final Report to the Parliament, a public hearing is carried out with the public bodies that may submit memoranda on the main questions raised by the Court.

It should be emphasized that the ex-post audit is essentially a performance or value-for-money audit, which is based on the principle of ‘collaboration’ (not punishment) with the audited government department. This kind of audit has the aim of underpinning the political scrutiny of audited government department and to propose corrective measures with the aim of ensuring a regular and cost-effective management.

Recommendations:

  • The NEDA, in collaboration with the sectors concerned, need to ensure the complete integration of the SDGs in the respective sectoral plans and the incorporation of the SDGs in the subsequent updating of the PDP and its RM, as appropriate.
  • To strengthen the development and implementation of policies across all types of financing, it is recommended that the NEDA, the Department of Finance and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) prioritize the adoption of the relevant recommendations embodied in the Country Paper on Financing the SDGs in the Philippines.
  • NEDA should pursue the creation of a Subcommittee on SDGs under the Development Budget Committee to ensure that programs contributing to SDGs are tagged and adequately funded consistent with the more integrative approach to the SDGs.
  • It is recommended that the PSA, in collaboration with PSRTI and DILG, need to continue building and enhancing the capacities of relevant offices in all levels of government and other stakeholders to ensure that capacities needed are in place for the monitoring, follow-up and reporting in the implementation of SDGs.
  • The NEDA, PSA and other relevant stakeholders should continue to identify opportunities for cooperation and partnership as they implement Agenda 2030 in addition to existing arrangements.

 

Tools/Manuals/Methodologies:

Desk reviews and analyses were conducted on relevant SDG materials obtained from the websites as well as from briefing materials on SDGs, documents, data and information provided by the NEDA, PSA, PSRTI, DILG, DBM and other key stakeholders. Questionnaires and requests for clarifications were sent to NEDA, PSA and DILG on matters relating to integration of SDGs to the PDP and local plans, means of implementation and follow-up, monitoring and reporting on the progress towards achievement of SDGs.  Focus group discussions were also undertaken with the representatives from the NEDA, PSA, DILG and PSRTI.

As prescribed by the IDI, the audit team used the manual – Auditing Preparedness for Implementation of Sustainable Goals: A Guide for Supreme Audit Institutions.

National Greening Program – Reforestration Remains an Urgent Concern but Fast-Tracking its Process Without Adequate Preparation and Support By and Among Stakeholders Led to Waste of Resources

Recommendations:

COA recommended to DENR the following actions to help ensure earnings of the community partners from seedling production:

  1. Provide partner communities with trainings on seedling production and fund management;
  2. Do not proceed with the contract unless the partner communities are capable of producing the seedlings themselves; and
  3. Adjust the timelines for seedling production to give partner communities time to produce the seedlings.

By implementing the recommendations, DENR will be able to ensure that about 34% of the total budget will be redirected to community partners and not to private suppliers. With more sustainable income, the community partners will be made to stay in the community/plantation sites and continue take care of the forests.

COA also recommended to resume efforts to restart the convergence initiative involving other government agencies. The DENR could start mapping the government grants related to the program and establish a unit that will help partner communities comply with the documentary requirement of the grants.
 

Tools/Manuals/Methodologies:

Apart from the usual interviews and site visits, the auditors used a variety of tools in analyzing the data. First, is the Geocam, which is a geophoto and video application for Android. It uses augmented reality to show on top of your camera a layer of geographical information such as Compass orientation, GPS position and different phone inclinations like a theodolite optical instrument. The auditors used this application to validate the reports of the extension officers by creating their own geo-tagged photos of the plantation sites.

Since, plantation sites cover thousands of hectares, the auditors will not be able to trek the entire area. Hence, the auditors used Google Earth Pro to get a bird’s eye view of the plantation sites. Furthermore, the Google Earth Pro has a timelapse feature. Using this feature, the auditors were able to see the progress of the plantation areas through the years.

The problem, however, is that Google Earth Pro does not always contain the most updated image of the plantation sites. Hence, the auditors also used Sentinel Hub. Sentinel Hub provides newer satellite images of the plantations sites.

Sustainable Development Goals – Seychelles Coastal Management

Recommendations:

  1. The National Oversight Committee that oversees the implementation and reporting of the SDG should address the gaps identified by the RIA assessment and ensure that all SDG targets are met and that the national plans are effectively implemented. Together with other stakeholders they should also identify ways to raise more awareness on the SDGs across the population.
  2. The Policies, Acts and Regulations that governs coastal zone management in Seychelles should be updated and revised to align with the current situation. The country should also develop its Integrated Coastal Zone Management Plan which will assist in the sustainable development and management of its vulnerable coastal areas.
  3. The Enforcement agencies such as the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change should maintain proper records in regards to pollution cases. The Seychelles National Oil Spill Contingency Plan should be revised and updated to reflect current best practices to address an oil spill. Other entities such as the Ports Authority should also be vigilant on port activities that may pollute these areas.
  4. Coastal adaptation projects being implemented in the Seychelles to mitigate the impact of coastal degradation and erosion should be carefully planned, implemented and managed. Authorities should adopt a pro-active approach and ensure that the most appropriate coastal mitigation option is being used. These projects should also follow the relevant Procurement Acts and Regulations.
  5. Coastal monitoring and enforcement should be enhanced to reduce the incidence of illegal fishing and overfishing. Synergies should be enhanced between respective authorities to effectively apprehend and bring those guilty to court in a timely manner. Better monitoring and implementation of fishing agreement, conditions and regulations should be in place to ensure that there is no overfishing.

Performance audit of the preparedness for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals in Zambia

Recommendations:

Taking a whole of Government approach, the recommendations are to various Ministries, Provinces and other Spending Agencies (MPSAs). The MPSAs include Ministry of Finance, Ministry of National Development Planning/ National Secretariat for SDGs implementation, Ministry of Local Government, the Decentralization Secretariat and Cabinet Office among others. Some of the recommendations made include:

  • i. A concrete way forward should be developed by the Ministry of National Development and Planning (MNDP) to ensure the uptake of the SDGs targets not aligned in 7NDP. MNDP should ensure that there is continuity when drafting the successive National Development Plan (NDP) so that the targets are included in the subsequent NDP.
  • ii. The coordination Ministry, MNDP should engage Sectors, Provincial Administration and district Councils in reviewing and/or developing implementation plans that will in turn align to the 7NDP and the SDGs and provide clear guidance.
  • iii. The MNDP has to strengthen the National Statistical System and come up with tools that will be required to comprehensively measure all the elements identified in the 7NDP and SDG Agenda.
  • iv. Ministry of Finance should estimate the total cost of Zambia attaining the Agenda 2030 and estimate the cost under different scenarios.
  • v. Ministry of Finance should develop a more innovative financing strategy for the SDGs unlike placing more reliance on traditional sources.
