Publication of Sustainable development in Wales and other regions in Europe
WHO Regions of Health published a new publication "Sustainable development in Wales and other regions in Europe - achieving health and equity for present and future generations", which also features examples from Pomurje.
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, complemented by the WHO European policy framework and strategy for the 21st century, Health 2020, represents a milestone for human and planetary development. This publication proposes ways of maximizing opportunities to implement these agendas at the national and regional levels across the WHO European Region.
The publication maps the sustainable-development journey in Wales (United Kingdom) the heart of its constitution to inclusion in Welsh legislation through the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015. It identifies enablers, challenges and opportunities related to sustainable development in Wales.
The publication aims to enhance understanding of the key role of regions in translating global priorities into effective policies and actions, providing practical examples, which can serve as blueprints for others.
The case studies include the Czech Healthy Cities National Network and the regions of North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany), Kaunas (Lithuania), Pomurje (Slovenia), and Västra Götaland (Sweden).
