3. The government has taken various measures towards achieving Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Analyse their performance. What course corrections are required to meet the targets?

Difficulty level: Tough

Reference: Live Mint

Why the question:

The underlying statistics for assessing global progress of SDGs across a wide range of very fuzzy goals and targets is less than perfect, but the Jeffery Sachs-lead data is the most consistent, global and long-term coverage that the world has.

Key Demand of the question:

To write about India’s performance with respect to SDG’s and changes required to achieve the target.

Directive word: 

Analyse – When asked to analyse, you must examine methodically the structure or nature of the topic by separating it into component parts and present them in a summary.

Structure of the answer:

Introduction: 

Begin by giving context about 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are to be achieved by 2030.

Body:

First, mention the important SDGs in brief and write about the various measures taken in order to achieve them.

Next, evaluate India’s performance toward achieving various SDGs by 2030 and mention the shortfalls.

Next, write about the various course corrections that are required in order to ensure that SGDs are achieved by 2030.

Conclusion:

Conclude with a way forward.
