RELEASE OF CIVIL SOCIETY REPORT ON SDGs:
AGENDA 2030 – INDIA
Civil Society Report on SDGs: Agenda 2030 is a Civil Society initiative anchored by Wada Na Todo Abhiyan (WNTA) wherein large number of civil society organizations and networks working on SDGs have prepared a report on SDGs : Agenda 2030 which focuses on ten goals and is prepared through secondary research as well as consultations with local communities, particularly, the marginalized communities. The report has used the lens of ‘Leave No one Behind’ and ‘A Life of Dignity for All’ as proposed by the SDG framework. The Government of India is presenting its Voluntary National Review report on SDGs at High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development 2017 in New York.
The aim of the Civil Society Report on SDGs would be to highlight the status of SDGs in India and to create traction on SDGs: Agenda 2030 involving multi-stakeholders. The Report also envisages to map the existing government interventions at national, state and local levels as well as to identify the gaps and challenges to achieve the SDGs in order to actively engage with the government and create a platform for dialogue between the Civil Society, the Government and other stakeholders on SDGs.
The Civil Society Report on SDGs: Agenda 2030 will be released in the presence of a large gathering of eminent citizens, government officials, prominent civil society leaders, academia and experts from across the country. Moreover, it will also be released at the side event during High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) in New York on 12th July 2017.
