Infrastructure Policy Watch: measuring India's progress on SDGs, Canada consults on infrastructure priorities

CHRIS RICHARDS | June 15, 2021

The National Institution for Transforming India (NITI), an Indian government policy commission, has published its SDG India Index and Dashboard 2020-21 report on progress against the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the state level in India, its third annual report.

The main theme of this year’s report is ‘partnerships’, with NITI aiming to highlight the pace that can be achieved by working together in pursuit of the goals, as well as shine a light on the quiet but effective partnerships working away in the background.

As part of this, the report sets out actions that have been taken across the 11 areas of the collaborative advantage framework to drive forward progress on SDG indicators.
In the accompanying index, all Indian states and union territories are scored and ranked on each SDG, alongside progress over the year.
