Transforming India 2030: A Roadmap for Sustainable Development Goals

Sustainable development is new phenomenon to meet the requirements of people and their overall growth. To achieve “2030Agenda” UNDP has set 17 goals which are broad and interdependent. In last few decades India witnessed a economic growth which is also reflected in rise in standard of living of people but it is also noticed that this growth in only confined to a small proportion of the population and a large section of society is still lacking their basic needs of living. Thus, is clear that in India the economic growth is unequally distributed amongst the population which results in unequal sustainable development of peoples. The governments along with other non-government organizations have put some serious efforts for upliftment of such sections of society. UNDP has set 17 goals for the world for all over sustainable development, but in India there are certain areas which need more attention for overall sustainable development.
