Geneva, as the European headquarters of the UN, and host to over 40 international organizations, and almost 700 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), has a unique ecosystem of actors working on implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Geneva SDG Community is a dynamic network of individuals operating in this unique ecosystem to advance the SDGs globally. The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) – in partnership with the SDG Lab – convenes this diverse network to mobilize the expertise and capacity of Geneva-based actors to accelerate the SDGs.
Health is concerned as SDG 3.
The International Institute for Sustainable Development's mission is to promote human development and environmental sustainability through innovative research, communication, and partnerships.
Established in 1990, IISD is an independent, non-profit organization that provides practical solutions to the challenge of integrating environmental and social priorities with economic development. IISD is part of the SDG Lab.
The SDG Lab is a multi-stakeholder initiative, led by UNOG, that contributes to the implementation of the SDGs by supporting Geneva-based actors and beyond in further leveraging expertise and knowledge into policy, practice and action.
