Kerala likely to achieve SDGs much faster than others
The southernmost state of Kerala and the northernmost state of Himachal Pradesh are likely to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the Indian government much faster than the others.
As per a recent report publicised by the think tank of the Indian government NITI Aayog, Kerala and Himachal Pradesh are progressing at a faster rate towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
Ending poverty, ensuring healthy lives, achieving gender equality, establishing sustainable water management system are the prime Sustainable Development Goals put forth by the country.
The country is on a herculean task to achieve these goals by the year 2030. According to the report, for Kerala and Himachal Pradesh that task may not be that difficult.
But, in the report, there are clear hints about the possible difficulties the government’s task is likely to face in the near future.
As per the report, Uttar Pradesh, Assam and Bihar are progressing at a slower rate towards the Sustainable Development Goals. It indirectly indicates that in those areas where the progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals is happening at a slower rate, the immediate intervention of the government is needed.
What should the central government do to help the states where the progress is happening in a slower rate?
