The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN)  was set up in 2012 under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General and direction of Professor Jeffrey Sachs. SDSN mobilizes global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical solutions for sustainable development, including the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement. SDSN works closely with United Nations agencies, multilateral financing institutions, the private sector, and civil society.

Nova SBE has recently become a SDSN Partner to leverage the School’s education for sustainable development. SDSN not only provides sustainability-minded teaching materials to use in-class, but also offers the opportunity to disseminate our Faculty’s research among global networks.
