With the partnership of the Social Progress Imperative, the Institute for Competitiveness, India has launched a discussion paper on a Social Progress Index for States of India.
“We are thrilled to support the partnership between NITI Aayog and the Institute for Competitiveness as India works to benchmark social progress in great detail across 28 states and one territory,” said Michael Green, Chief Executive Officer of the Social Progress Imperative. “We look forward to seeing how innovative leaders in government and business use this new map of human wellbeing to improve the lives of people across the subcontinent.”
This exciting development to measure and advance wellbeing in India is an example of the applicability of the Social Progress Index to improve social progress around the world.
