Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) India has initiated the SDGs Drivers Forum – a first of its kind strategic action group with an objective of engaging Indian Inc. along with other stakeholders in the process of advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in India.
The first goal that has been undertaken within the wider ambit of the SDGs Drivers Forum is SDG 2 – Zero Hunger, which is one of the most critical goals for India. In collaboration with our thematic SDG partner, United Nations World Food Programme India (UN WFP India) we have initiated a dedicated Goal 2 Action Group comprising of leading stakeholders from diverse sectors on Transformative Partnerships to Achieve SDG2.The Outcome Report entailing roadmap to particularly achieve SDG2 in the Indian context can be accessed here.
As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact ( UNGC), the SDGs Drivers Forum will undertake goals that are of utmost priority for India. We also aim to align the selection of our upcoming goals in the development of the UN High l Level Political Forum ( HLPF) where the theme for 2017 has been outlined as “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world” and selective goals have been prioritised that require immediate intervention and partnerships from key stakeholders.
