The Euskadi Basque Country 2030 Agenda is , therefore, fully incardinated Government in action, which will facilitate his monitoring and evaluation . The General Secretariat of External Action will elaborate annually a follow - up report with the various contributions generated within the Commission Inter External Action andcontent be sent to the Basque Parliament .  



The document has been presented in an act celebrated this late in the Villa Suso Palace , in Vitoria- Gasteiz . The meeting has served to deepen in the 2030 Agenda promoted by Nations United and the content of the 17 Millennium Development Sustainable among those, ending poverty, ensure education inclusive and equitable , amanagement sustainable water and energy, growth economic sustainable or a management sustainable ecosystems and biodiversity, among others. It's about the   First Public Administration in the whole of the Spanish State in reflect his commitment to Agenda 2030 by submitting a proposal integrative , transversal,concrete , clear , temporary, participatory , adaptable and international .

From the definition phase of the Agenda, both Nations United as the Commission European, have given great importance to the role of sub- state governments to implement the same, as in Many cases are those who they have the competences , resources , and knowledge specific to the realities and needs plus close to society .Each territory must travel East path taking in consideration of your own circumstances . This is one of the characteristics differentials of the 2030 Agenda, its commitment to the promotion of the territorial dimension and with its adaptation at the regional level.

That is why the Basque Government has taken on the universal challenge posed by the 2030 Agenda, and adheres to the commitment world to contribute to the achievement of the Millennium Development 17 Sustainable.
