About SDG Action

SDG Action is a new initiative launched by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) to support the UN’s Decade of Action – the global effort to mobilize governments, businesses, and civil society to deliver the SDGs by 2030. 

SDG Action is a resource for sustainability practitioners in all sectors and brings timely analysis of the most pressing challenges. Its emphasis is on identifying opportunities and providing tangible ways to accelerate progress. This website features articles from world-leading experts on all aspects of the SDGs and climate action.

There are two print editions, designed to provide a framework for understanding the complex interdependencies between the SDGs. They highlight priorities and dilemmas, and suggest ways to make the greatest impact, fast. The release dates for these are:

• the SDGs edition in July (for the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development)
• the Climate Action edition in November (for COP)

In addition, there are regular online, special-focus editions, timed to coincide with major global diplomacy events.

Please do contact us at info@sdg-action.org if you would like to share feedback and ideas or would like to be involved.
