The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) has been operating since 2012 under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General. It mobilizes global scientific and technological knowledge on the challenges of sustainable development, including the design and implementation of the SDGs.
To mobilize these knowledge centers for practical problem solving on sustainable development, SDSN built a network of National and Regional SDSNs.
These networks coordinate SDSN’s 1000s of member institutions - universities, research centers, think tanks, and civil society organizations.
Our network is hosted by the University of South Africa - focusing on the mobilizing SDG implementation in South Africa.
SDSN South Africa is a community of universities, research centers, and other knowledge institutions to translate the latest expertise in sustainable development into action.
