Meghalaya CM discusses Sustainable Development Goals ranking



Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma conducted a meeting with all the Deputy Commissioners of the State and senior Government officials to discuss the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) ranking of Meghalaya.

Briefing media persons, Chief Minister Sangma said, “Sustainable Development Goals have been given to all states and Niti Aayog has been following up to ensure its implementation across the country.”

“Goals assigned State-wise can also be localised into District-wise goals. The aim of the meeting was to involve everyone to ensure the data is available and push the DCs to take more interest in the goals to improve State’s ranking,” said CM Sangma.

On the way forward, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma added, “We have decided to rank the districts and assign an untied fund of ₹ 50 lakhs to each District to encourage them to implement programmes and interventions which will ultimately lead to the improvement of the State’s overall ranking.”
