The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) mobilizes global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical problem solving for sustainable development. The SDSN has operated under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General since 2012. We are committed to supporting the implementation of the SDGs at local, national, and global scales.

SDSN mobilizes the academic community to translate the latest expertise in sustainable development into action. To this end, we are building a global network of universities, research centres, and other knowledge institutions focusing on:

Providing and mobilizing support for the SDGs;

Promoting practical Solutions Initiatives and long-term pathways for sustainable development;

Promoting high-quality education and research collaboration for sustainable development;

Supporting governments in understanding and addressing the challenges of sustainable development.

Spanning six continents, the SDSN Networks Program draws upon the knowledge and educational capacity of over 650 member institutions. This report presents our unique global network of problem solvers and their contributions to addressing the world’s most pressing problems.
