Statistical indicators cannot bring about sustainable development, unless they are tied to the social context, with existing welfare and rural development schemes brought together under one reference framework. To discuss this and other findings of the recently published report entitled “Implementing the SDGs in India: Poverty, Hunger and Gender”, the Foundation for Global Governance and Sustainability (FOGGS) convenes a virtual panel discussion.
