What We Do
We are a global and national facilitator that helps optimize resources and efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by enabling effective collaboration with the broader ecosystem.
We are an online collaboration platform that provides access to information on what partners are doing, real-time data on relevant SDGs, and events and solutions that funders and others are supporting. We add curated, targeted information every week, with a growing, connected audience.
The platform is led by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA) and supported by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Ford Foundation, Brach Family Charitable Foundation, and UN Foundation.
We Seek To
We expand awareness and knowledge of the SDGs and how to leverage them. We provide learning opportunities on the SDGs, map out SDG ecosystems to show who is doing what, and where, and how they are collaborating.
We increase engagement between stakeholders to help them increase their impact and advance the SDGs. We help to create local philanthropic networks, multi-stakeholder partnerships and enabling a legal environment for philanthropic investments.
We facilitate new types of collaborations and investment in promising transformative solutions between philanthropy, business, investors, the UN, government, and broader civil society. We identify SDG accelerators and support innovative solutions.
How We Work: Collaborative Pathways
Collaborative Pathways are the platform's flagship approach at country level.
Where We Work
SDGPP has established pathways to engage philanthropy in the national SDG planning and implementation in 8 pilot countries, namely Brazil, Colombia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, the US and Zambia, and is currently seeking to expand to many others.
