Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy

1. Overview of the Federal Government’s Approach to Sustainable Development

The Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS) 2013–16 guides the Government of Canada’s sustainable development activities, as required by the Federal Sustainable Development Act. In keeping with the objectives of the Act to make environmental decision making more transparent and accountable to Parliament, the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) supports the implementation of the FSDS through the activities in this supplementary information table.

DFATD’s sustainable development strategy presents the planned contributions and expected results for Theme I – Addressing Climate Change and Air Quality, and Theme IV - Shrinking the Environmental Footprint – Beginning with Government.

2. Theme I: Department-Led Targets

FSDS GOAL 1 - CLIMATE CHANGE: In order to mitigate the effects of climate change, reduce greenhouse gas emission levels and adapt to unavoidable impacts.

FSDS Target 1.1: Climate Change Mitigation - Relative to 2005 emission levels, reduce Canada's total GHG emissions 17% by 2020.

1.1.51. Provide legal services and advice for the international climate change negotiations, coordinate financial obligations.

5. Additional Departmental Sustainable Development Activities and Initiatives

Non applicable.

6. Sustainable Development Management System

DFATD ensures that its decision-making process includes consideration of the FSDS goals and targets of the FSDS through application of the Cabinet Directive on the Environmental Assessment of Policy, Plan and Program Proposals (Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) process) and environmental reviews under the Canadian Environmental Assessment ActThe results of SEAs are made public when respective initiatives are announced, demonstrating that environmental factors were integrated into the decision-making process.

For additional details on DFATD’s activities in support of sustainable development, see the department’s Sustainable Development website. For complete details on the Strategy, please see the  Federal Sustainable Development Strategy.

7. Strategic Environmental Assessment

The environmental assessment of policy, plan and program proposals, also known as strategic environmental assessment (SEA), is a tool to help decision makers consider sustainable development. It provides a systematic approach for identifying important, potential (positive or negative) environmental impacts early in the planning process, before they occur.

The department has put in place internal processes to ensure that all its Cabinet and Treasury Board submissions and internal development proposals are subject to application of the Cabinet Directive on the Environmental Assessment of Policy, Plan and Program Proposals.The results of SEAs are made public when initiatives are announced, demonstrating that the environmental effects, including any impacts on achieving the FSDS goals and targets have been appropriately considered during proposal development and decision making.

Environmental assessments of trade negotiations are an important decision-making tool for promoting sustainable development. These assessments contribute to more open decision making within the federal government by engaging representatives from other levels of government, the public, the private sector and non-governmental organizations in this process. They also improve overall policy coherence at the national level by assisting decision makers to understand the environmental implications of trade policy.

For more information on strategic environmental assessment please see the department’s Sustainable Development  and Environmental Assessment of Trade Negotiations webpages.

Description: The purpose of this program is to pay the assessed contribution for Canada’s membership in the WTO. The WTO provides the only multilateral forum for negotiating market access and other trade rules. It also provides the best forum for monitoring the implementation of obligations and commitments under various trade agreements, reviewing members’ trade policies and practices, and discussing trade-related issues that inhibit the free, fair and predictable flow of trade.

The WTO is the only organization offering a state-to-state dispute settlement system whereby trade disputes are settled based on commonly agreed-on rules, rather than on political or economic power. Through these agreements, 160 WTO members operate a non-discriminatory trading system that spells out their rights and obligations. Each country receives guarantees that its exports will be treated fairly and consistently in other countries’ markets. Each promises to do the same for imports into its own market.

Recipients are not required to repay funds obtained under this transfer payment program.

Expected results:

Canada is able to access international organizations to contribute to and share responsibility for the management of international issues, as measured by:

Upcoming Internal Audits and Evaluations Over the Next Three Fiscal Years

A. Audits

In light of the amalgamation of Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), a transitional Risk-Based Audit Plan (RBAP) was developed for 2014-2015, rather than a three-year plan. Given this, the following list comprises audits which will carry over from the 2014-2015 transitional plan, as well as those which were included in the approved 2013-2016 RBAPs from the former CIDA and DFAIT. A multi-year RBAP is being developed for 2015-2018, and will therefore result in changes and additions to the audits listed below.
