About the Lab

SDG Lab is a multi-stakeholder initiative that contributes to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

How We Work

SDG Lab works with a diverse ecosystem of actors that are focused on delivering the 2030 Agenda. We identify strategic opportunities for convergence in order to energize and maximize the added-value and expertise of International Geneva in supporting implementation of the SDGs on the ground.
