The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) has been operating since 2012 under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General. It mobilizes global scientific and technological knowledge on the challenges of sustainable development, including the design and implementation of the SDGs.
To mobilize these knowledge centers for practical problem solving on sustainable development, SDSN built a network of National and Regional SDSNs.
These networks coordinate SDSN’s 1000s of member institutions - universities, research centers, think tanks, and civil society organizations.
The SDSN Kenya network is hosted by Moi University and the University of Nairobi.
SDSN Kenya promotes the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015. The Agenda provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth while at the same time tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
