IISD is proud to announce an important change to the delivery of your Climate Change Policy & Practice news and events. We are launching the SDG Knowledge Hub on Monday, 17 October. This comprehensive knowledge management platform will consolidate IISD’s nine Policy & Practice knowledgebases, and the tens of thousands of published articles contained within them, into a single entry point focused on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Beginning Monday, we will deliver information on the latest additions to the SDG Knowledge Hub in daily issues of a new newsletter: SDG Update. Watch for the announcement of the new Hub and first issue of SDG Update on 17 October!
