Feb 01, 2017

There should be adequate financing in India for various pillars of Sustainable Development Goals, says UNIC representative.

New Delhi: Rajiv Chandran, currently heading United Nations Information Centre for India and Bhutan (UNIC), in 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, Rajiv talks about India’s preparation for reporting back to UN on SDGs, expectations from union budget, the role of UN and monitoring of SDGs. He says that since fifty percent of the India’s population comprises of women, we need to ascertain that half of the money being spent of different projects in the country is earmarked for women.

Rajiv says that all the pillars of SDGs should have adequate financing for making them a success. He said that India plays a very important role in the UN scheme of things.
