In order to implement different central schemes, the J & K administration is reviewing the progress on the ground.
Recently Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir said that Jammu and Kashmir is well ahead of national average in many parameters and would be one of the model UT of country.
He stated that J&K aims at implementing SDG 2.0 as its objective with a defined roadmap and optimal timelines. He advised us to have a clear idea about where to see ourselves after 6 months, 1 year or a decade from here. He also directed for making the SDG portal live by next month for the UT which would give real time data for targeted interventions.
On the occasion he thanked Mr Goel for sharing his ideas and expertise with the officers to sensitize them about the future challenges to be faced by the Government. He asked him to help J&K in drawing way forward in light of its strengths and opportunities.
In his address Mr Goel called SDG a vehicle for attaining future-ready governance. He remarked that building institutional capacity should be the focus of the administration. He observed that the partnership with UNDP can be valuable in creating future-ready J&K.
In his presentation, he dwelt upon effective systems, processes and technologies that can help in faster implementation of SDGs. He asked for creating awareness about technology which he said is not based on IT tools alone but future technologies in sync with changing times.
