Research plays a key role in addressing Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Most research on SDGs focuses on identifying what causes environmental degradation and social ill-being. However, the need to consolidate and effectively communicate this knowledge still remains a challenge.  Especially because research outcomes are not adapted to the local context based on the country’s regulation policies, environmental and social issues, user perception and expertise.

How can research come to aid for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the South Asian context for environmental and social issues?

Attend the Dialogue Workshop on SDGs to,

  • Collectively identify and assess the forms of knowledge and collaboration required to promote SDGs in the South Asian context
  • Synthesize and broker knowledge for Swiss-South Asia collaborations
  • Facilitate interaction, networking and collaboration between South Asian participants, and between Swiss and South Asian participants to promote relevant SDGs

This workshop is a part of ‘Knowledge2Action in South Asia’ project, which aims to  bring together researchers and SDG actors, promote knowledge generated from ongoing projects and facilitate future cooperation in research and education on environmental sustainability and social wellbeing (ES&SW) between Switzerland & South-Asia. The project is funded by the Swiss Universities Development and Cooperation Network (SUDAC) programme.
