Ep - 01: SDGs - An overview (Hindi)
This episode of Ek Duniya Ek Awaaz provides an overview about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how India is gearing up to achieve goals that aim to create a more equitable and just society.
On September 25th, 2015, member states of the United Nations adopted a set of 17 goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
In this programme, we talk to Prof Sachin Chaturvedi, Director-General, RIS to delve upon efforts of India to achieve SDGs including interventions at the parliamentary levels, the transition from MDGs and key learnings for the way forward. In his talk, Prof Chaturvedi says that there is a need to reduce dependence on government for achieving SDGs. At the same time, he emphasises that civil society and corporates will play an important role in achieving these goals.
