Environmental protection is aimed at maintaining (and recovering when necessary) a healthy natural environment. Sustainable development embraces environmental, social and economic objectives, to deliver long-term equitable growth which benefits current and future generations
Sustainability Literacy” is the knowledge, skills and mindsets that allow individuals to become deeply committed to build a sustainable future and that help them to make informed and effective decisions to this end
Our mission is to expand sustainable knowledge, skills, and mindset that motivates individuals to become deeply committed to build a sustainable future and to make informed and effective decisions.
The core idea is to set clear goals,
to help orient the behavior of governments, of businesses, of each of us as citizens, as students, as researchers, as activists, as consumers, so that we’re pointed in a shared direction. This is the idea of goal-based development, and I always think of the wonderful observation of a great American leader, President John F. Kennedy, when he talked about the importance of setting clear goals to help move a society forward. He said that “By defining our goal more clearly, by making it seem more manageable and less remote, we help all people to see it, to draw hope from it, and to move irresistibly toward it.”
The SDG Fund incorporated several relevant changes:
The SDG Fund works to turn development effectiveness principles into joint programmes that deliver results and advance sustainable development goals.
Sulitest provides citizens and organizations with internationally recognized and locally relevant tools to engage learning and access the degree of awareness on sustainability challenges and solutions of their stakeholders.
Sulitest collects meaningful indicators on the awareness on sustainability challenges and solutions. Sharing these indicators may allow researchers, educators and other relevant stakeholders to tailor pedagogical approaches and learning experiments to support education for sustainable development.
About UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network:
SDSN mobilizes scientific and technical expertise from academia, civil society, and the private sector to support practical problem solving for sustainable development at local, national, and global scales.
The SDG Index evaluates the performance of the countries on the 17 SDGs which were agreed by the international community in 2015 with equal weight to all 17 goals. The score achieved by each country indicates its position between the worst (0) and the best or target (100) outcomes. Similarly in previous editions, three Nordic countries topped the 2020 SDG Index: Sweden, Denmark, and Finland. India has been ranked 117th in the index with overall score of 61.92.
According to the report, every country has a “red” score on at least one SDG in the dashboards. Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, and Cambodia are the three countries that have progressed the most in terms of the SDG Index score while the three countries that have declined the most are Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and the Republic of the Congo.
From India’s point of view, Sustainable Development Goals need to bring together development and environment into a single set of targets. The fault line, as ever in global conferences, is the inappropriate balance between environment and development…we could also view the SDGs and the post 2015 agenda as an opportunity for revisiting and fine-tuning the MDG framework and sustainably regaining focus on developmental issues.”
This admission is of course an understatement. All available indicators point to the ecological situation being nothing short of disastrous. Natural ecosystems are under stress and decline across most of the country; some 10 per cent of the country’s wildlife is threatened with extinction; agricultural biodiversity has declined by over 90 per cent in many regions;
This has meant that the country’s national development goals are mirrored in the SDGs. As such, India has been effectively committed to achieving the SDGs even before they were fully crystallized. As one of the countries that has volunteered to take part in the Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) at the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2017, India appreciates the focus on ‘Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world’.
