Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". The SDGs, set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and intended to be achieved by the year 2030, are part of UN Resolution 70/1, the 2030 Agenda. The goals are broad based and interdependent. Balanced, inclusive and sustainable development together with the socio-economic progress of all individuals is the vision of Government of Uttar Pradesh. Experience has shown us that economic growth alone does not eradicate poverty or generate employment opportunities for the youth; it is important to ensure that the benefits of economic development reach those poor and marginalised families, farmers, labourers, women and the differently abled (divyang), who have so far not been able to reap the fruits of development in terms of improvements in human development indicators and access to resources. The strength and potential of the state vis-a-vis its natural resources necessitate systematic planning, acknowledging the inter-dependence of social, economic and environmental factors along the lines of SDGs.
