In 2015, sdghub.org was launched as an independent platform based in a global center of global sustainability governance: Geneva. The SDG Hub aims to connect global expertise with local needs to promote practical problem-solving for sustainable development and in particular the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Following the adoption of the SDGs in September 2015, sdghub.org is committed to supporting the implementation of the SDGs at local, national, and global scales.
We aim to accelerate joint learning and help to overcome the compartmentalization of technical and policy work by promoting integrated approaches to the interconnected economic, social, and environmental challenges confronting the world. sdghub.org works closely with United Nations agencies, governments, multilateral financing institutions, the private sector, and civil society.
The organization and governance of sdghub.org aim to enable a large number of leaders from all regions and diverse backgrounds to participate in the development of the Hub, while at the same time ensuring effective structures for decision making and accountability. The Governing Board acts as the board of the sdghub.org. A smaller Executive Committee oversees financial, programmatic, and other operational matters. The Academic Advisory Committee works on issues relating to safeguarding rigorous research, education and curriculum design.
sdghub.org is a gathering place for people, organizations, and ideas that support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 2030 Agenda includes the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development, and the Paris Agreement on climate change.
sdghub.org is specifically focused on the generation and sharing of knowledge, and on translating that knowledge into action.
sdghub.org is here for you to foster collaboration, connect you with the most suitable researchers and practitioners, and provide useful insights. Thus, we aim to support you in realizing the opportunities that the 2030 Agenda and the combined SDGs offer.
