Mainstreaming Sustainable Development into National and Subnational Development Planning in Latin America and Caribbean

By Leslie Paas, Darren Swanson, Bishunarine Tulsie on June 25, 2014

SDplanNet is a sustainable development planning network created to help government professionals at the national and subnational levels share best practices and build capacity in the preparation and implementation of strategies for sustainable development, and inclusive and fair green economies, and act as a vehicle to assist in implementing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This paper is a synopsis of discussions held at the SDplanNet-LAC regional workshop series that took place in Panama City in February 2014. Participating representatives from countries in Latin America and the Caribbean included government planning offices and environment departments at the national level, as well as regional organizations and networks that have mandates for sustainable development and planning at the regional level.
