SDG India Index: Baseline Report 2018
Who’s behind it? – UN and NITI Aayog
How can it help? – This report, released by the UN and Government of India, examines SDG progress made by the country, its states and Union Territories (UTs). The index report reviews opportunities to accelerate progress in India, as well as to strengthen the country’s data collection and analysis capacities. Prepared by the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI Aayog)—the institution mandated to oversee India’s progress towards the 2030 Agenda—the SDG India Index provides a holistic view of the country’s social, environmental and economic status, also tracking progress made at the state and UT level. The Index is accompanied by a dashboard that allows users to visualize states’ and UTs’ performance, both in the aggregate and against specific SDGs. The metadata for each of the indicators that feed into the index are available to download from the dashboard.
