Regional SDSNs mobilize universities, research centers, civil society organizations, business, and other knowledge centers around practical problem-solving for sustainable development tailored to the specific needs of the region. Each Regional SDSN has its own priorities focusing on all or a subset of the following objectives:

  1. Raising awareness about the SDGs and “localizing” the goals through multi-stakeholder workshops and policy analyses;
  2. Promoting Solution Initiatives for sustainable development in the region that can have a transformative impact on sustainable development;
  3. Promoting education for sustainable development;
  4. Assisting governments in diagnosing local, national, and regional sustainable development challenges and in devising long-term strategies.
