Localising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Options for India

Concept notes and papers

The report focus on how the SDGs can be localised at village level in India. It explores the option of locating the SDGs within the Gram Panchayat Development Plans (GPDP) planning process. In order to do so, it is important that the National & State Level Policy frameworks are appropriately modified to reflect this endeavour, as the SDGs must become central to GPDP objectives, with GPs using local approaches to achieve them. To further this, this paper reviews the National Guidelines for Preparation of Gram Panchayat Development Plans in a bid to centralize the SDGs within the planning framework, and also based on experience, feedback and learnings from implementation. It is believed that this can facilitate better practice of the constitutional idea of participatory democracy & planning while promoting development toward India’s Targets on the Sustainable Development Goals.
