More than 160 Graduate Institute faculty, researchers and students are actively working on the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These activities span all 17 goals, and include research projects, publications, events, teaching, or are part of external initiatives and partnerships.

We have created this portal so that you can easily access our work on the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda. We hope that this will encourage collaboration on work towards achieving the SDGs, both within the Graduate Institute and within broader international academic and policy circles.

We also hope that research findings produced at the Graduate Institute can be put to good use in the policy world, where governments, non-governmental actors, scientists, academics, businesses and other actors are grappling with policy options and strategies that support global efforts to reach the SDGs by the year 2030.

You can search this portal by:

  • Goal, from 1-17;

The Graduate Institute‘s SDG Portal is edited by Nina Kiderlin and was developed by staff at the Global Governance Centre including Cecilia Cannon, Esther May and Thomas Biersteker.
