India’s SDG preparedness ranking continues to decline: Report

  • Published
    7th Jun, 2022
Context

As per a new report, India is not placed well to achieve the United Nations-mandated Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and its preparedness has worsened over the years in comparison with other countries.

About
  • India’s rank in the global Sustainable Development Report, 2022 has slipped for the third consecutive year. 
  • It is published by a group of independent experts at the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).
  • The country continues to face major challenges in achieving 11 of the 17 SDGs, which has pushed down its global ranking on SDG preparedness.
  • Ensuring decent work (SDG 8) has become more challenging for India.
  • This decline in India’s overall performance is primarily due to eight states — Bihar, Telangana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab and Jharkhand — whose scores have dipped under SDG 13 in the two years.

Sustainable Development Report:

  • The Sustainable Development Report (formerly the SDG Index & Dashboards) is a global assessment of countries' progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • It is a complement to the official SDG indicators and the voluntary national reviews.
  • The overall score measures the total progress towards achieving all 17 SDGs.
  • The score can be interpreted as a percentage of SDG achievement.
  • A score of 100 indicates that all SDGs have been achieved.

Sustainable Development Goals:

  • The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), officially known as Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a set of 17 “Global Goals” with 169 targets between them.
  • Sustainable development also depends fundamentally on upholding human rights and ensuring peace and security.
  • Leaving no one behind also means reducing inequalities within and among countries, reaching those most at risk, and strengthening our resolve to prevent conflict and sustain peace.
