The South African SDG Hub supports the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by enabling access to relevant, useful and reliable knowledge resources, providing policy advice, promoting dialogue and building capacity.
We build active partnerships with all actors in academia, government, the private sector and civil society interested in sharing their expertise or resources towards implementing the SDGs.
Our users are leaders in government, the private sector and civil society
The South African SDG Hub’s primary goal is to impact positively on South African policy making and policy implementation related to the SDGs. We seek to reach this goal by:
Sharing relevant, useful and reliable knowledge.

2 — Policy advice
The Hub seeks to impact positively on SDG-relevant policy making by producing policy briefs and by connecting government partners with researchers and/or research centres of excellence.
3 — Dialogue promotion
Regular roundtables are aimed at promoting dialogue between academic disciplines, sectors and line ministries on SDG-relevant themes.
4 — Capacity building
The Hub seeks to contribute to building capacity to implement the SDGs by means of short courses and by supporting dedicated degree programs.
