Align with the overall development priorities and the SDG framework

The UN Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals provide the global policy reference for policy makers to promote sustainable change in various areas of society. Global leaders have underscored that this agenda is applicable to all countries and to all policy areas. As sport, physical activity and physical education are also recognised as means for sustainable development, policy coordination between various stakeholders have started to analyse to which of the 17 sustainable development goals their international and national programmes can be linked. It is, therefore, essential that the national ‘vision for inclusive access for all to sport, physical education and physical activity and associated national policy priorities are coordinated and coherent with sustainable development priorities, as reflected in national development plans, regional sustainable development priorities and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
