Summary

The Government is keen to ensure Commonwealth departments and agencies show leadership in the processes by which economic, social and environmental goals are integrated. This inquiry will assess ESD implementation by Commonwealth departments and agencies with major responsibility for ESD, or whose activities have significant consequences for its achievement, and make recommendations designed to further implement the objectives and principles of the National Strategy for Ecologically Sustainable Development. In undertaking this inquiry, the Commission is to: (a) evaluate how those Commonwealth Government departments and agencies with significant policy or program management responsibilities related to ESD, or which undertake activities which directly impact on the achievement of ESD have incorporated ESD into their policy formulation, decision-making processes and programs; (b) review existing mechanisms to monitor and evaluate ESD outcomes, and report on the effectiveness of Commonwealth policies and programs in changing community or corporate behaviours in ways which promote ESD outcomes; (c) analyse the policy and economic implications of these Commonwealth departments and agencies incorporating environmental considerations into their economic and social decision-making processes, and provide case studies in priority areas; (d) develop conceptual frameworks and evaluation mechanisms for incorporating ESD into government decision-making processes; (e) develop priorities among Commonwealth Government departments and agencies and their programs and activities for the further implementation of ESD; and (f) recommend improved frameworks and processes for reporting, monitoring and evaluating the implementation of ESD.will ta
