Odisha’s CM uncovered SDG Indicator Framework-2.0

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik launched the second version of the Odisha SDG Indicator Framework (OSIF 2.0). Pointing towards the commitment to the SDGs, he said, “Together we can; Together we will.”

Briefing the virtual meeting, the Chief Minister said that the clarion call issued by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a testament that the only way going forward is to develop sustainably- integrating the social, economic and environmental dimensions of development.

Odisha faces complex challenges in the economic, social and environmental front spheres due

to its unique geographic vulnerability and the impact of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. To

address it in a more sustainable, holistic and equitable way, the state has been focusing on

realising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for which it adopted the SDG Monitoring

Framework in 2019. Given the crosscutting nature of the SDGs, the state government has

ensured the involvement of key actors, including UN agencies, in the implementation of SDGs.

A key parameter for driving change is the government’s public finance management.

The CM enunciated that our principles of 5T amplify our commitment to leave no one behind. Therefore, it becomes highly imperative that we monitor our progress in precise and challenging ways. The Odisha SDG Indicator Framework (OSIF 2.0) intends to do just this.
