Navigating towards a sustainable future, Algeria engages in strategic resource management to fulfill its 2030 vision. This study delineates a Fuzzy Goal Programming (FGP) model, inte-grating economic objectives with ecological and energy sustainability. The framework priori-tizes renewable energy, marking a decisive pivot from traditional hydrocarbon reliance to meet global environmental mandates. It also maps out a strategic redistribution of the workforce, signifying a shift towards a diversified, innovation-led economy that embraces sustainable methodologies. The implementation of the model offers a robust, empirical tool for decision-makers, harmonizing Algeria’s specific socio-economic attributes with broader, global sus-tainability trends. The outcome is a blueprint for a robust, renewable-centric economy, posi-tioning Algeria at the forefront of sustainable development and energy reform.
