The Kazan Action Plan was adopted on 15 July 2017 by the Sixth International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport (MINEPS VI). The Plan signals a commitment to link sport policymaking with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations. It also provides for an overarching sport policy follow-up framework and five priority areas for international and national multi-stakeholder cooperation.
