UNU-WIDER expertise part of new UNU Sustainable Development Explorer

Sustainable Development ExplorerThe United Nations University, of which UNU-WIDER is a part, has launched its Sustainable Development Explorer, a new campaign highlighting ongoing work to support each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The explorer allows visitors to explore the ‘who’ and ‘what’ of work being carried out at various UNU institutes around the world, as well as meet experts to learn about how their ideas are generating knowledge to develop solutions to achieve the SDGs.

The tool features several UNU-WIDER experts, including Pia Rattenhuber, Vincenzo Salvucci, Rachel Gisselquist, and Kyle McNabb, and how their research projects link to the global objectives. 

UNU’s work on the SDGs

Adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015, the SDGs unite global action to overcome the world’s biggest challenges, from hunger and poverty to equality and peace. UNU’s work is uniquely comprehensive, spanning the full breadth of the SDGs. Some 400 UNU researchers worldwide are engaged in more than 180 research projects, generating knowledge to develop realistic solutions to achieve the SDGs.

Available in English and in Japanese, UNU’s Sustainable Development Explorer currently features 51 projects, 34 experts, 34 publications, and 50 expert articles, all organized by SDG.
