Indicative Case Study: Strategy and Policy Implementation
The local self-governing bodies in India’s Andhra Pradesh state work with 34 million rural citizens on areas as varied as education, health, livelihoods, governance, and water/sanitation (WASH). KPMG in India worked with the state government to develop action plans targeting seven SDGs and aligned with its U.S. $5.6 billion budget working across 25 agencies and over 150,000 staff members.
Recommendations made by the KPMG team fostered SDG-aligned planning and implementation and conceptualized an information and communications technology system to bridge siloes and synergize planning efforts among local authorities, the state government, and community-based organizations involved in this implementation. These efforts laid the foundation for implementing the SDGs at scale.
