The UN in India website has become more user-friendly with an improved makeover

United Nations in India announced on their Twitter handle that they have undergone a digital makeover with “a new & improved website for the UN in India-fir for the 21st century.” The UN has supported India’s Sustainable Development Agenda of ‘Leave No One Behind’ for 2030 adopted by 193 Member States at the UN General Assembly Summit in September 2015. The development will include all people with a focus on economic growth for equal societies.

The website illustrates 17 resolutions taken by the Indian government for a better nation, such as No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health And Well-Being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water And Sanitation, Affordable And Clean Energy, Decent Work And Economic Growth, Industry-Innovation and Infrastructure, Reduced Inequalities, Sustainable Cities And Communities, Responsible Consumption And Production, Climate Action, Life Below Water, Life On Land, Peace-Justice And Strong Institution, and Partnerships For The Goals.

According to the website, almost 270 million people have been lifted out of multi-dimensional poverty in India while approximately 84.44% of people were provided with employment, and almost 91.38% of beneficiaries received social protection benefits under the Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana. The UN will help India by providing technical and financial support in order to ensure that the upcoming Census will be of high quality. The UN assisted India in creating E-learning modules, and public awareness regarding the importance of education, and training manuals. The UN has committed $120 million to India supporting the Census.

The UN has also given details about its implementing partners and investing partners on the website. The website states that India will be working more towards food security, providing optimum nutrition to all, clean water, sanitation, free health, gender equality, youth development, building clean energy, urbanization, creation of more job markets, and upskilling individuals.

The website has also provided with the facility of UN India Digital Library to learn about the India UN programs in detail and the Indian Model of Sustainable Development Goals. The website will also be publishing stories both in Hindi and English language. The website is easy to access and provides details effectively via its Story and Publication.
