    About the Book :

    This book “Sustainable Development Goals : Issues and Challenges” deals with the various aspects of sustainable development goals. On 25th September, 2015, under the guidance of the United Nations, 193 countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Development goals are taken as a part of the new sustainable development agenda.

    Sustainable development is one of the major issues in developing countries which have experienced unbridled growth of population, acute poverty, galloping unemployment, malnutrition, poor health, unhealthy education system and environmental threats, etc. Gender inequality, ill-health, poor sanitation, non-affordable safe and drinking water, pernicious indicators related to mortality, nobility and vulnerability are the impediments in the way of sustainable development. Keeping in view of these problems, now-a-days there occurs a transition from Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    Thus, in this book all the relevant aspects of sustainable development goals have been framed which will add a new dimension to development policies of India. This book will be fruitful for teachers, research scholars and students who have fond of learning.
