About SDG Knowledge

IISD’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Knowledge Program provides information and analysis in support of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the 17 SDGs.

Our work seeks to enhance SDG implementation by increasing the accountability of decision-makers, transforming patterns, processes and relationships for implementation and engagement, and developing and applying methods to track progress as well as to measure that progress in new ways.

We undertake these objectives through our information sharing and dissemination work on the SDG Knowledge Hub and convening and enabling SDG professionals through the Geneva 2030 Ecosystem. In addition, we work at the local level to establish community indicator systems, analyze the cost to implement SDG 2 (zero hunger), analyze how Canada can assess its comprehensive wealth to move “beyond GDP” as the fundamental measure of societal progress, as well as value the true cost of pollution in Canada.
