Youth & India’s Sustainable Development Goals
Youth & India’s Sustainable Development Goals gives an overview of the state of India’s youth and the lacuna in their development. It is a book that provides perspectives on the role and contribution of 300 million youth in achieving the UN-set sustainable development goals. Despite umpteen policies for children and youth for more than 70 years, welfare measures do not percolate down to those who need them the most. The chain of weak mothers giving birth to malnourished children continues to make generations of Indian youth weak, incapable, uneducated, unskilled and poor. But surprisingly, no attempts have been made by researchers to study and provide ways to remedy the looming skill-level disaster that the country faces in the coming decade.
