The success of the implementation of the Haryana VISION 2030 will depend on how well the targets set by the departments are owned by each employee of the department and the extent of public awareness and engagement to become an active partner in their achievement.
The vision set by the state will need to percolate down to each official, decision maker, opinion leader, community leader and the citizen indeed in the state.
Their knowledge and capacity to understand the SDG targets will need to be augmented to make them the triggers of change.
Localizing of SDGs is the process of considering subnational contexts in the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, from the setting of goals and targets, to determining the means of implementation and using indicators to measure and monitor progress.
Localization relates both to how the SDGs can provide a framework for local development policy and to how local and regional governments can support the achievement of the SDGs through action from the bottom up and to how the SDGs can provide a framework for local development policy.
The SDG Action Plans will need last mile adaptation or localisation at the district and GP level. Districts are extremely important units of governance and administration and their role in achieving Agenda 2030 is vital. There is a need to build capacities of the districts in developing long term vision, action plans, monitoring mechanisms and processes that support implementation, linked to state vision.
For this localization of SDGs, SDGCC will work towards orienting local planning and implementation at GP level by providing technical knowhow and hand hold all district / GP functionaries in formulation of Gram Panchayat Development Plans (GPDP) including mapping of existing schemes under the GPDP with the SDGs. It will work towards strengthening the functioning of state level resource institutions and departments for training, monitoring of GPDP and FFC utilization and strengthening of District and Block Resource Centers.
Mobilization and sharing knowledge, expertise, technologies and financial resources are crucial to the achievement of the sustainable development goals.To do so it is important that the government, various UN agencies, private sector, NGOs, academia, civil society and other stakeholders work together to find innovative solutions for implementation.
Such multi-stakeholder partnerships enhance transparency and accountability of activities being undertaken and encourage communication and exchange of information.
Towards this SDGCCs mandate is to involve Private Sector / CSR / Foundations at the grass root level implementation.
SDGCC actively seeks opportunities to raise funds from multilateral and bilateral agencies, vertical funds, and market its innovative approach to SDG implementation of the state at the global level.
To access already existing knowledge and common need of skills and capacity, SDGCC will also engage in mutually advantageous partnerships and MOUs with other international and state level SDG initiatives.
To effectively implement the SDGs in Haryana, it is vital to monitor the progress on SDGs implementation and achievement of set targets by each department on a concurrent basis.
A framework for SDG monitoring and the data management system for collecting, validating and analyzing data on progress of SDGs (including a DASHBOARD) becomes a primary need. Innovative technologies and mobile applications are instrumental in building a robust institutional structure for conducting regular monitoring of SDGs as per the data management system.
