UNU Sustainable Development Explorer


Interconnections are central to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015, the SDGs inspire global action to overcome the world’s related challenges — 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. Our global network of highly-specialised research institutes collaborates to better address these complex, multifaceted challenges.

With some 400 UNU researchers engaged in more than 180 research projects, we are 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, meet our experts, and learn how our ideas are generating knowledge to develop realistic solutions to achieve all 17 SDGs.
