Post - 2015 and SDGs
The rising inequalities and disparities universally led to the advent of a World initiative “Millennium Development goals”. It was an initiative to bridge the gap between the have and the have-nots of human society.
In this context, in September 2000, eight Millennium development goals were adopted by 192 countries in the United Nations Summit. The countries committed themselves to work towards eliminating poverty and sustainable development for a better future. The quantifiable and time-bound goals were set to measure the well-being of people.
NACDAOR understood the critical importance of MDGs and worked within the framework of the goals. It focused on most excluded communities Dalits and Adivasis to reduce the grave inequalities faced by them. Dalit and Adivasi issues were highlighted for the successful implementation of Millennium Development Goals. NACDAOR joined the Global Call to Action for eliminating poverty at international level. It conducted a grass-roots level assessment of MDGs to check the progress of Dalits and Adivasi in the development process of India. It acted as an active body to ensure the critical implementation and assessment of MDGs among Dalits and Adivasi.
Then we stepped into 2015, a year of crucial importance. In this year, countries gathered again to determine the post-2015 development agenda. It gave birth to new areas of interventions and addressed domains which were lagging in MDGs. It will be a worldwide initiative to bring in changes among the MDGs and setting up new goals according to the needs of the people. Interventions in the areas of Poverty Eradication, Youth Employment, Natural Resource Conservation, Gender Equality and Women Empowerment, Health, Quality Education, Sustainable Economic Growth, Disaster Management, Water and Sanitation and Capacity Building will be taken up across the globe.
NACDAOR have understood the need of the hour and the critical importance of post-2015 agenda. In this context, NACDAOR will work and address grieve issues such as equal right to economic resources, access to basic services, access to land and other forms of property, reducing the vulnerability of poor to environmental disasters, access to quality technical and vocational skills for employment of youth, raising capacity of women youth and marginalized, increasing the capacity of local communities to pursue sustainable livelihoods, creating leadership among women decision making, reducing the number of people suffering from water and sanitation and many more. NACDAOR will work hard to achieve development for Dalits and Adivasi by building an empowered and self-reliant society.
