Civil Society Report on SDGs: Agenda 2030 is a Civil Society initiative anchored by Wada Na Todo Abhiyan (WNTA). The report was released among a large gathering of 225 participants consisting of academicians, members of the media, networks working on SDGs, organizations/individuals engaged with marginalized groups and members from civil society organizations across 18 states of India including Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Manipur, Odisha, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, West Bengal and Telangana on 6th July 2017 at the ‘Speaker Hall’, Constitution Club of India, New Delhi.
The report “Citizens’ Report on 3rd Year of the NDA Government-2017: Promises & Reality” was released on May 24th, 2017 at Dy Chairman Hall, Constitution Club of India, New Delhi-100011.
YUVA jointly with Wada Na Todo Abhiyan (WNTA) and several civil society organisations implemented the online survey on ‘Leave No One Behind’ supported by CIVICUS. We connected to around 200 plus organisations, working with the marginalised group at national and sub-national levels in the different states of India.The initiative aims to gather and collate the views of grassroots organisations/worker on SGDs goals and targets and also on agenda “leave no one behind”.
The report presents data to understand the level of acceptance, awareness and the understanding of grassroots organisations/workers on SDGs, concept of inequalities and exclusions and ability to translate the SDGs mandate and agenda ‘leave no one behind’ into the reality realm. The report also covers information on the level of participation and impact/influence of marginalised groups on policy makers at various levels. An important dimension is the information about what are the priority areas in the SDGs identified by the organisation. The report is a useful guide to the understand that how can different stakeholders such as government, civil societies, academicians and practitioners engage in different process at different levels, given that the 2030 agenda will influence development strategies and efforts for the next 15 years at the national and global levels. It is of particular value to those engaged in the SDGs process at the global and national levels as well as for those who track the progress in their communities. We also hope it serves as a framework for civil society and various stakeholders to come together and collaborate in translating and achieving the SDGs and not just ‘leaving no one behind’, but empowering the most marginalised to achieve the targets.
