What is the North East Region District (NER) SDG Index?

The NER District SDG Index and Dashboard: Baseline Report 2021-2022 is an innovative comprehensive, data-driven tool that measures the progress of all districts in the Northeast region states.

The NER District SDG Index and Dashboard is a collaborative initiative of NITI Aayog and the DoNER Ministry with technical support from UNDP. NITI Aayog is the nodal SDG agency in India,

The report used 84 indicators that cover 15 of the global goals across 50 targets. The report worked to localize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the 120 districts of 8 states, namely Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura.

How was the SDG of the NER district report prepared?

The methodology and construction of the report is based on the central objectives of measuring the performance of the 120 districts of the 8 states of the Northeast region on the SDGs and their corresponding targets and ranking them accordingly.

The index in the report is based on NITI Aayog’s SDG India Index, which is the official tool for tracking SDG progress at national and state or EU territory levels.

The eight states of the North-East region were widely consulted to finalize the aspects relating to the calculation methodology and the selection of indicators for the NER district’s SDG index and dashboard.

States offered to enrich localized knowledge and field experience during the feedback process, which helped build the index better.
