Sketching the Relevance of the National Framework for the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in India, Hosted by ST. ALOYSIUS’ COLLEGE , JABALPUR, India.
India, as a prominent developing country, has played an important role in shaping the SDGs. The country’s national development goals are mirrored in the SDGs. As such, India has been effectively committed to achieving the SDGs even before they were fully finalized. The SDG India Index 2020–21 is more robust than the previous editions on account of wider coverage of targets and indicators with greater alignment with the NIF. The 17 SDGs are integrated such that, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability. India’s 115 SDG indicators incorporate 16 out of 17 SDGs, with a qualitative assessment on Goal 17, and cover 70 SDG targets. This is an improvement over the 2018–19 and 2019–20 editions of the index, which had utilized 62 indicators across 39 targets and 13 Goals, and 100 indicators across 54 targets and 16 Goals, respectively.
This side event looks to deliberate upon Indian frameworks and their role in shaping the SDGs. As stated by our Honorable Prime Minister. Shri. Narendra Modi, India is giving great priority to our evolving understanding of the social, economic, and environmental linkages that define quality lives for the people. This platform will help to evaluate the national frameworks and review their relevance for the 2030 Agenda.
