What Are SDGs


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) constitute the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and guide all global, regional and national development endeavours.

In September 2015, 193 countries came together at the United Nations to adopt and commit to a long-term, comprehensive strategy to tackle the world’s greatest challenges related to global sustainable development. The result was the SDGs, a list of 17 goals to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030.

Adopting and achieving these global goals is important because it encourages social mobilization, create means for accountability among the governments, spur networks of expertise, knowledge and practice into action and most importantly mobilize stakeholder networks across countries, sectors and regions, coming together for a common purpose. Through a holistic view these goals can be achieved and Sky Social is exactly working in this manner for achievement of the SDGs by 2030.

India is also a signatory to United Nations 2030 Agenda for achieving inclusive, people- centric and holistic Sustainable Development through 17 identified Goals. To this extent, the Government of India is operating with strategic visioning, prioritization, and implementation methods to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the motto of "Leaving No One Behind", through "Whole of Government and Whole of Society" approach.

SDGs are cross-cutting in nature and a particular SDG can be mapped to many government departments, ministries and are interconnected to each other which can be addressed through various schemes, policies and laws.
