The PCSD online toolkit provides practical guidance, self-assessment checklists, good practice examples and tools to analyse, enhance and track progress on policy coherence in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It aims to guide decision-makers and practitioners in:

  • Conducting analysis to improve understanding on the interactions among SDGs and targets (synergies and trade-offs) and their implications;
  • Strehgthening existing institutional mechanisms which can support a more coherent and integrated implementation of the SDGs;
  • Identifying options for monitoring, assessing and reporting progress on policy coherence for sustainable development.

This tool is supplemented by thematic analysis developed by the OECD on three cross-cutting areas: food security, illicit financial flows and green growth.

 Thematic Areas

The analytical framework is based from the report Better Policies for Sustainable Development 2016.
