National knowledge partnerships have been established to localize the agenda and set local, national and regional initiatives. Communication platforms are established to bring together the K4D community to learn, share, and perform better together.
Agenda for Knowledge Development
The Agenda is aimed at providing a universal knowledge framework offering guiding principles, nurturing the dialogue on knowledge, strengthening global knowledge ecosystems and, ultimately, contributing to
better success in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
Based on the statements of 130 experts and representatives of multi-stakeholder communities, this Agenda has been presented in its current version in April 2017 at the UN Office in Geneva.
