The Government may stop funding the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC), according to a report released by the Environmental Audit Committee on 10 January. It is recognised that sustainable development has not been fully entrenched into Government, despite the SDC’s work. The report highlights the opportunity to reassess and revitalise the delivery of sustainable development. WWF have criticised this move, commenting that a “beefed-up Cabinet Office with a new minister in no way replaces the SDC as it will not provide independent advice and scrutiny”.
