Consultation on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Wednesday, 9 September 2015, New Delhi
At the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in September this year, over 160 Heads of State and Government, together with leaders of civil society and the private sector, will gather at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in New York for the adoption of the new Sustainable Development Agenda.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is expected to replace the Millennium Development Goals, and usher in a new development paradigm; one that is equally applicable to the developing and developed countries, and addresses the three interconnected elements of sustainable development – economic growth, social inclusion and environmental sustainability.
Ahead of the historic Summit, the United Nations in India, along with Niti Aayog, Government of India and Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS) organized a brainstorming on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with experts and representatives from the Government who will be in New York for the Summit.
