About the SDG Knowledge Hub

The SDG Knowledge Hub (http://sdg.iisd.org/) is an online resource center for news and commentary regarding the implementation of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The SDG Knowledge Hub is managed by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), which is fully responsible for its content. Our team of experts regularly updates the SDG Knowledge Hub and produces the SDG Update, which contains the latest news, original commentary from our experts, guest articles from key actors in SDG implementation, and more. The SDG Knowledge Hub also provides a calendar of upcoming events related to the 2030 Agenda.

Launched in October 2016, the site brings together the content of our former Policy & Practice knowledgebases focused on: Chemicals and Wastes; Climate Change; Natural Resources; Small Island Developing States (SIDS); Sustainable Development; Sustainable Energy; and our three regionally focused sites on Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean.


IISD gratefully acknowledges the support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) for the SDG Knowledge Hub.
