India has played a prominent role in the formulation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And much of our country’s National Development Agenda is mirrored in these SDGs. In fact, Niti Aayog has modelled the national performance indicators on the 17 SDGs, 169 targets and 306 national indicators.
Water For People India has adopted a similar approach to measure the impact and sustainability achieved by the Everyone Forever model in West Bengal (South 24 Parganas, Birbhum), Bihar (Sheohar), and Maharashtra (Amravati). Our indicators evaluate the development impact and compute a pathway towards achieving long-term sustainability. The metrics measure service levels related to water points and sanitation facilities at the household and public institution levels.
