About the SDG Knowledge and Learning Platform

The SDG Knowledge and Learning is an open access electronic platform, established by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UN-ESCWA). It contributes to more effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through enhancing the capacities of the Arab countries by disseminating knowledge, promoting learning, and providing training in sustainable development issues. 

It is the first knowledge platform to provide decision-makers in the Arab region with a comprehensive set of resources and learning materials on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in Arabic and English issued after the adoption of the UN General Assembly resolution 70/1 "Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" on 25 September 2015. Not only does it target decision-makers in the Arab region, but also UN staff members, parliamentarians, a wide range of regional and international institutions, civil society organizations, the private sector, and academic and research centers, among others.

This platform provides resources to increase the technical and substantive knowledge of Arab multi-stakeholders, which will help them assess and accelerate their progress on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals as we enter the Decade of Action 2020-2030 that calls for action and delivery for sustainable development.
