Poland Case Study- Analysis of National Strategies for Sustainable Development

The “Sustainable Development Strategy for Poland up to 2025” (Polska 2025) is the main framework, elaborated by the Polish Government. It is a multidimensional strategy and the focal point for other plans, programmes and strategies. Due to its longterm perspective, sustainable development is perceived of as a process that allows for a gradual balancing of growth, social cohesion and environmental protection. The overall strategy aims at not disturbing the country’s efforts to catch-up with the industrialised countries. Insofar, Polska 2025 has an open character – like a compass for the state and society – and is not narrowly concentrated upon some quantified objectives.
