Interconnections are central to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, the SDGs inspire global action to overcome the world’s related challenges. These range from hunger and poverty to equality and peace. Governments, businesses, civil society, and the UN system are working together to achieve the goals by 2030, and improve the lives of people everywhere.
Research for Solutions
The United Nations University’s work is uniquely comprehensive, spanning the full breadth of the SDGs. Therefore our global network of highly-specialised research institutes collaborates to better address these complex, multifaceted challenges.
Currently we count some 400 UNU researchers engaged in more than 180 research projects. As a result this makes us most active where the different goals merge and interact. The UNU Sustainable Development Explorer is an opportunity to experience the “who” and “what” of UNU’s work. Similarly we can meet our experts and learn how our ideas are generating knowledge to develop realistic solutions to achieve all 17 SDGs.
