The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) has established 12 Thematic Groups (TGs) comprising leading scientists, engineers, academics and practitioners from business and civil society to promote solutions to key challenges of sustainable development.
The TGs are solution oriented rather than research oriented. Their goal is to spur governments, UN agencies, and the public towards practical solutions to the greatest challenges of sustainable development. They highlight priority actions, open questions, and early-stage demonstration projects.
Each TG, in its respective field, addresses five main questions:
Each TG is determining its priorities and three-year work agenda, partly in response to questions put to it by the High-Level Panel on Post-2015 and by governments around the world.
