Breaking Sectoral Silos in National Planning and UN Support

We continued providing comprehensive support to several island States to help leverage systems thinking and ensure more integrated, participatory and responsive planning processes. In Cyprus, we helped develop a national SDG Action Plan. In collaboration with UNDESA, we have supported UNRCO for Mauritius and Seychelles in applying systems thinking to enable the two SIDS to transform their development paths towards more resilience, sustainability, and inclusiveness.


We have contributed to a global conversation on the use of citizen science data for monitoring the SDGs. Together with several International Organizations, we developed a Policy Brief with recommendations for National Statistical Offices on this topic and pledged to join a new Collaborative on Citizen Data. The Institute also helped run Crowd4SDG data challenges for youth and mentor teams on data projects.

UN SDG:Learn

UN SDG:Learn Partnership has grown as a result of the creation of a new SDG4Business Task Force to address the learning needs of MSMEs, in particular. The IAEG on SDG Indicators also decided to use the gateway’s statistics page as the main go to place for all learning on SDG indicators. Finally, we have launched a new SDG Fitness Test with UNESCO in early 2022 to help learners self-assess their cross-cutting sustainability competencies.
