By sanctioning the Pluriannual Plan (PP) of the Union, in December 2019, former president Jair Bolsonaro vetoed the 2030 Agenda of the UN (United Nations) for the period from 2020 to 2023.
At the time, the Presidency stated, in a note, that the decision was made after technical and legal manifestations that alleged unconstitutionality in the eventual sanction of the PP with the 2030 Agenda.
The text says that the federal government recognizes the diplomatic and political importance of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Still, by including them in the PP, although they are recommendations, they would acquire a degree of a legal obligation, violating precepts for applying international acts established by the Federal Constitution.
However, the National Confederation of Municipalities (CNM) embraced the 2030 Agenda, and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals are being applied in the daily work of local and regional governments across the country.
In this sense, we can highlight the SDG Mandala: an application made available to municipal public managers and society that makes it possible to diagnose, monitor and evaluate the performance of Brazilian Municipalities regarding the level of achievement of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
On February 13, 2023, the Minister of Health, Nísia Trindade, stated that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the 2030 Agenda would be the priority axes of the government of the recently sworn-in President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva
