Agenda Knowledge for Development. Strengthening Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals

Concept notes and papers

This Agenda for Knowledge Development is designed to complement the SDGs by providing an integrated approach to knowledge-related challenges that directly influence the achievement of the SDGs. It presents a vision of the societal and economic value of knowledge in which the transformational power of knowledge can be harnessed for the development of inclusive, pluralistic knowledge societies. We consider that knowledge is indispensable to individuals, communities, enterprises, governments and the global community, and is thus an intrinsic part of sustainable development. It is based on an initial 50 statements, written by individuals with different societal and regional backgrounds. More statements have been collected since then, reaching a total of 73 to be found in this publication. The statements demonstrate the diversity of views, issues and considerations involved in knowledge for development.
