Sustainable Development Goals: Realisation in Rural Assam

Dr. Pobon Kr. Gogoi

Abstract: At the end of the Millennium Development Goals in 2015, the United Nations Organisation launched Sustainable Development Goals with 17 goals, 169 targets, and 304 indicators on 25th September 2015 under the official agenda "Transforming our world: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". The SDGs are comprehensive and broader in the sense that attempt to address all social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. The UN member states have voluntarily accepted and adopted the goals and targeted to achieve the goals within a stipulated time. As a member state of UNO, the Government of India has framed the strategy and policies under the NitiAayog and asked the state governments to fulfill the goals. As such, the government of Assam as like as other states initiated different benevolent steps to fulfil the objectives of the goals. Out of the 17 goals, goals 1 and 2 related to the eradication of poverty and ending hunger are also addressed by the government of Assam through the Panchayat and Rural Development department in cooperation with other departments. The process started with the development of agriculture, infrastructure, employment, health care, education, women empowerment, rural development, entrepreneurship, and social assistance. Thus, this study is conducted to understand the state government initiatives to eradicate poverty and hunger under SDGs 1 and 2 in Assam.
