The World's Knowledge Network for the Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN),launched in 2012, mobilizes global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical problem solving for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement. The SDSN was established by and works under the auspices of the United Nations Secretary-General. The SDSN supports the implementation of the SDGs at local, national, and global scales, in collaboration with UN agencies, multilateral financing institutions, the private sector, governments, and civil society. Spanning six continents, the SDSN network comprises over1,200 member institutions, most of them universities, coordinated by 33 National and Regional Networks. They promote the localization and implementation of the SDGs, develop long-term transformation pathways for sustainable development, provide education around Agenda 2030, and launch solution initiatives to solve particular challenges. Each network focuses on distinct projects and priorities in line with their unique local contexts and challenges.
