The objective of this study is to provide the reader with a critical appraisal of the Spanish Sustainable Development Strategy (SSDS), for which the Renewed EU Sustainable Development Strategy (EUSDS) is also analysed in the fields where it is relevant to the former.
Following the background and the concept of sustainable development (SD) analysis in the SSDS, the fundamental assumption that economic growth is an imperative is extensively analysed, arguing that it is not feasible as a paradigm. Next, each of the seven priority areas and the Spanish performance in them are briefly referred
and appraised, with a higher emphasis in the “climate change (CC) and clean energies”, due to the strong specific weight in the SSDS that the previous section gives to it. A comment about the indicators used to monitor the evolution of the SSDS is given before the final conclusions.
