Nagaland: Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio launched the Nagaland SDG Vision 2030: Leaving No One Behind on 17th August, Tuesday, at the Capital Convention Centre in Kohima.
The Nagaland SDG Vision 2030 is a document that provides State-specific short, medium, and long-term targets with measurable indicators and strategies that the state should focus on to meet the aspirations of the people for sustainable livelihood and living standards, Rio said while addressing the meet.
The document is based on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. The District SDG Localisation and Integration Manual were launched by Neiba Kronu, the minister for planning and coordination, land revenue, and Parliamentary Affairs on the occasion.
Since the Northeastern region lags in the economic growth sector, and Nagaland being the resource-constrained state, the state government hardly gets any place to meet the larger investment needs for capital and infrastructure development. Also, the Central Government should invest in the implementation schemes in the Northeast hilly states considering the strategies and the challenges.
And our nation can only achieve the SDG when the states themselves lead the whole process in every area from districts, blocks to villages. Currently, the Northeast region is playing the most crucial role in achieving a positive goal towards the 2030 vision.
