The Punjab Cabinet on Wednesday gave in-principle approval for a Four-Year Strategic Action Plan (4SAP) – 2019 to 2023, to set Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the  departments of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, Water Supply and Sanitation, PWD (B & R) and School Education. The action plan, which was taken up by the cabinet under the  chairmanship of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, will also set the key performance parameters for Government officials to enable integration of the departments into the  development process of the state. It was also decided to approve their integration into the State Budgetary process.Disclosing this here today, an official spokesperson of the  Chief Minister’s Office said that these key parameters were in line with the United Nations 2030 Development agenda, which contains 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),  comprehensively covering social, economic and environmental dimensions. Focussed on goals, targets and performance assessment of each department, these would be  reflected in the Annual Performance Appraisal Reports of key personnel as per targets assigned to them.The SDGs and targets had been mapped to the Administrative  Departments, with each SDG assigned to one Nodal Department as one goal related to many departments. Besides, the state had also adopted the National Indicators  Framework, with implementing departments preparing the state specific indicators.It may be recalled that in order to take up proper planning, implementation and monitoring of  the progress of realisation of the UN SDGs, the State Government had earlier constituted a Task Force headed by the Finance Minister, besides appointing a steering committee  under the Chairmanship of Chief Secretary.acc
