NESC & Sustainable Development

NESC & Sustainable Development

Since 2012, NESC has integrated a sustainable development perspective more fully into its work, with support from the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government

NESC has developed its work in two ways. It integrates sustainable development issues into its analysis of significant national challenges. It also conducts research on specific areas of interest in sustainable development. 

European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils (EEAC)

NESC is a member of the European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils (EEAC) which is a network of advisory bodies established by national or regional governments.  EEAC members offer independent advice to their respective national or regional governments, proposing solutions and new understandings of the critical challenges facing our societies and the planet.
