Working Group on Platforms and Content in Support of SDGs
What platforms can be utilized to support the achievement of the SDGs?
The Working Group on Platforms and Content in Support of the SDGs, Chaired by Professor Jeffrey Sachs, was tasked with providing an overview of best practices and policy, technology and infrastructure requirements to establish regional and national platforms and content that can promote the achievement of the SDGs within their 15-year time frame.
