The SDG Index is an assessment of each country’s overall performance on the 17 SDGs, giving equal weight to each Goal. The score signifies a country’s position between the worst possible outcome (0) and the best, or target outcome (100). For the first time since the adoption of the SDGs in 2015, the global average SDG Index score has decreased. The decrease is mainly due to the impact of COVID-19 on key SDG indicators.

India’s Performance:

  • At 120th position among 165 countries with a score of 60.1
  • Achieved Statistical Performance Index of 70.4 for 100
  • Out of 17 SDGs, 11 are ‘Major Challenges’, 03 are ‘Significant Challenges’ and 01 ‘Challenge remain’ and 01 ‘SDG achieved’
  • 06 SDGs are Moderately improving; 05 are Stagnating; 02 are Decreasing
