With a vast experience of more than 150 joint programmes around the world, the SDG Fund’s knowledge management strategy aims at collecting and disseminating insight for development partners worldwide. The SDG Fund is also working closely with universities and academic partners.
The SDG Fund Secretariat, based in the UN Headquarters, is responsible for the monitoring and evaluation of the Fund’s joint programmes, as well as for the management of the knowledge gained from its current and previous work.
To this end, in addition to incorporating knowledge management into the joint programmes’ management and learning cycle, the SDG-F establishes knowledge partnerships with a number of UN agencies and academic institutions. The purpose of these alliances is to analyze the current SDG Fund and previous MDG Fund programmes’ good practices and lessons learned and to promote South-South cooperation by facilitating the exchange of experiences between countries.
The SDG Fund is expanding its knowledge efforts and new partnerships with research institutions around the world with a stronger focus on the implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals agenda.
The SDG-F Secretariat works also directly to promote the analysis of lessons learned, the exchange of experiences between countries and the development of a knowledge reservoir both on the joint programmes model and on sectorial issues, including sustainable development case studies.
The SDG Fund actively participates in research activities, producing high quality research papers, books and engages in side events organized by the UN entities to support the generation and dissemination of knowledge on sustainable development.
As governments, civil society, businesses and researchers are engaging in understanding and achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the SDG Fund is proud to launch this library to fill an important gap: creating an online platform for publications with accessible content related to the SDGs.
