This episode of Ek Duniya Ek Awaaz provides an overview about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how India is gearing up toachieve 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.
For this, we interviewed Dr. K. Somasundar, Advisor/Scientist, Ministry of Earth Sciences, Govt. of India. He spoke about wise consumption and conservation of marine life. He has mentioned that although every goal are connected with each other, but this goal will affect most of the goals related to poverty, hunger, sanitation and energy.
