India VNR 2020- Decade of action: Taking SDGs from global to local
India, home to one-sixth of all humanity, holds the key to the success of the 2030 Agenda. India in its second Voluntary National Review (VNR) has made a paradigm shift to a “whole-of-society” approach with Government of India engaging sub-national and local governments, civil society organizations, local communities, people in vulnerable situations and the private sector. India’s commitment to the SDGs is reflected in its convergence with the national development agenda as reflected in the motto of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikaas (Collective Efforts for Inclusive Growth). Based on the evidence from the SDG India Index, which measures progress at the sub-national level, the country has developed a robust SDG localization model centered on adoption, implementation and monitoring at the State and district levels.
