Abstract This paper looks at sustainable development integration in Latvia's environmental policy, focusing on assessment and analysis of normative, organizational and procedural policy integration instruments. This research is based on desk research and in-depth interviews structured along the lines of a focused conversation. The paper concludes that there is no formal policy integration process in place and main integration barriers lack integration procedures, conflicting interests of stakeholders and organizational fragmentation.
