Mission Human Development Index
Vision 2029 of Andhra Pradesh envisages attaining a Human Development Index value of 0.9, a healthy milestone that has so far been achieved by only few advanced countries.
The action plan in this area lists out improvement of all HDI component indicators such as life expectancy at birth, average years of schooling and increasing the Per Capita Income by 5-6 times, which is going to be challenging. The state will require a more comprehensive framework that lead to a sustainable, faster and inclusive growth platform. This means going beyond managing the conventional poverty and vulnerability norms, as outlined in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Why Global Sustainable Goals 2030
After the year 2015, Andhra Pradesh, along with other parts of the World, has decided to adopt the Global Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDG 2030). The state aims to direct and drive the social and economic development policies and programmes.
SDG 2030 builds on the MDG eight anti-poverty targets that the World is committed to achieve by 2015. These SDGs will be more ambitious than the Millennium Development Goals, covering a broad range of interconnected issues, from economic growth to social issues to global public goods.
The AP state government is keen to make sure of implementing of SDGs in a judiciously prioritized manner that complies with local challenges, capacities and available resources.
Adhering to National Development Agenda
Since the UN summit on SDGs that was held in September 2015, India was represented at the international level by Honb’le Prime Minister and also started turning their attention to national development agenda to achieve by 2030.
With a total of 17 Goals and 169 Targets drafted by UN SDGs group, the Government of India ( NITI Aayog) along with all states started to work on it in order to achieve SDGs by 2030.
Successful achievement of this makes it imperative to assess the baseline and existing resources to prepare a road map for the state to meet the SDGs. While the targets envisaged are still being framed, a draft report is prepared with the aim of visualizing the state baseline, targets and milestones and key Strategy to achieve SDGs by 2030.
The Chief Minister also stated that this report particularly maps the existing programs and policies that are aligned with the SDGs to achieve the post 2015 agenda in the state.
