Andhra Pradesh - Towards a sustainable Economy

As the Government of India is strongly committed to the 2030 Agenda including the SDGs, what is more important is the path we choose to achieve this goal of a Trillion Dollar Economy!

For Andhra Pradesh, the path we choose is not just the key to the transformation of a state or a nation, but for the global transformation. State governments are the key to India’s progress on the SDG Agenda as they are best placed to ‘put people first’ and to ensuring that ‘no one is left behind’ so much so that over 15 of the 17 SDGs directly relate to activities undertaken by local governments in the country. The state of Andhra Pradesh believes in translating sustainable development goals into realistic, sound policy initiatives which would in-turn help in building a robust, impactful people-friendly and environmental-friendly eco-system. One such initiative is the Navaratnalu (9 Assurances), an integrated comprehensive social development policy aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals covering agriculture, health, education, housing, and welfare sectors. These assurances cover social protection for all, to change people’s lives in coherence with the environment.
