14. Why is the project taking place?The project reacts to the need for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and inclusion of Policy Coherence for Development principle (PCD) in this process. The PCD is explained in the Lisbon Treaty as a commitment for both the EU and its members “to take account of the objectives of development cooperation in the policies that it implements which are likely to affect developing countries”. Yet, there is a gap in understanding of how to put the PCD in practical policy-making.
15. Overall objective of the projectTo increase the involvement of policy-makers in promoting coherent policies for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to strengthen the critical understanding of key actors on the global interdependencies and their engagement in concrete policy actions for sustainable development.
16. Specific objective(s) of the projectBy 2020, policy-makers, CSOs and other key actors actively participate in SDGs implementation and take coherent actions, particularly in policies in the area of poverty eradication, decent work, accountable production and consumption, and climate change responses.
17. What will have changed as a result of the project? (Summarise the intended outcome)R1: Policy-makers are aware of the Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) principle and provided with means to apply it within SDGs implementation. R2: Key actors engage in policy-making via consultations and advocacy actions with the aim to make PCD approach reflected in concrete policies. R3: Increased coordination, expertise and cohesion among development and non-development platforms of CSOs.

23. Main achievement of the project to-dateOur goal is to make relevant actors aware of PCSD and help them implement SDGs. This goal can only be achieved by numerous smaller steps, not a single big action. Therefore, we consider the following numbers our main achievement: - 1909 addressed policy-makers - 151 participating policy-makers - 425 participants of so-called incubators (multistakeholder events where we seek policy solutions to the issues we focus on) (306 CSO participants + 119 other policymakers, business representatives, researcheres or journalists) - 40 influenced policies
