UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development

The Knowledge Center for Sustainable Development was established by the United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) in 2016 in Bonn, Germany. Its mission is to respond to the comprehensive learning, training, and knowledge management needs of UN staff and partners in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as well as the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Together they form the most comprehensive blueprint to date for eliminating extreme poverty, reducing inequality, and protecting the planet. Along with the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, they constitute an integral plan of action for people, planet, and prosperity which requires all countries and stakeholders to act in concert.
