The European Union translated the UN Sustainable Development Agenda by 2030 into its Acquis and is one of the leading international entities in its implementation. Against this backdrop, the current European Commission set six priorities, within the framework of political guidelines for its operation for the period 2019-2024, with the ambition for Europe to be the first climate-neutral continent, to strive for prosperity for its citizens and social fairness, to empower its citizens with a new generation of technologies, to ensure equality in the Union and improve the democratic capacity of European institutions, and through global leadership to promote these values in its foreign policy.
Putting this systemic approach of the EU towards the Agenda 2030 in the context of Montenegro’s accession to the EU and its pursuit of SDGs, the legislative and policy alignment with the EU works, in fact, towards the meeting the Agenda 2030 commitments, and gives a strong push towards SDG achievement.
