Irish government publishes “Our Sustainable Future: A framework for sustainable development for Ireland”

“Sustainable development is about ourselves. It is about inhabiting a place where there is economic stability based on a model of national progress and development that respects the three core pillars of sustainability: the environment, the economic, and the social.”

The Irish government recently published its policy approach to sustainable development in Ireland: Our Sustainable Future: A framework for sustainable development for Ireland. According to the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government: “the Framework will be Ireland’s main contribution to the Rio +20 conference on sustainable development which takes place in Rio de Janeiro later this month”.

The framework document can accessed in full here.
