The sustainable development goals (SDGs) contain seventeen goals which have a bearing on multiple issue areas including agriculture. This study sought to develop an SDG Blueprint to inform integrated approaches to sustainable agriculture at the national level in India. It is crucial that the lenses of sustainable development, climate action, value chains, and multi-stakeholder approaches be considered for sustainable agriculture to contribute towards food security, livelihoods, and ecosystem integrity. The scope of the study was to examine the national policy interface of sustainable agriculture with SDGs. Through tools such as stakeholder mapping, systematic literature review, sustainable agriculture metrics, nominal group techniques, key informant interviews, and stakeholder validation, an SDG Blueprint is developed to inform policy and praxis on the issue of sustainable agriculture.
