The importance of aligning policies that enable sport to contribute to sustainable development with co-ordinated efforts to protect and promote the integrity of sport has been recognised through both the 8th Commonwealth Sports Ministers Meeting and the 6th International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport (MINEPS VI).

This discussion paper provides additional guidance in working towards such sportrelated policy coherence, and is accompanied by a Self-Evaluation Checklist for Sport-Related Policies. These documents draw on relevant and existing policy documentation, guidance and expertise, and they are aligned with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 17.14 – which also aims to enhance policy coherence for sustainable development. A broad and widely accepted conception of policy coherence as both enhancing synergies and reducing inconsistencies or trade-offs between different policy objectives and implementation processes is used throughout.
