Africa’s first knowledge resource aimed at linking development actors with evidence relevant to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was launched earlier this year. The South African Sustainable Development Knowledge Hub (SA SDKH) was launched by Jeff Radebe, South Africa’s Minister in the Presidency. The SA SD KH contains initially publicly-accessible research from a first cohort of South African universities. Support from South Africa’s Department for Science and Technology enabled the addition of SDG-relevant African innovations. Partnerships aimed at expanding and replicating the SA SD KH beyond South Africa are currently being established. For more information, contact the SA SD KH coordinator Prof Willem Fourie through the SA SD KH website , Twitter and Facebook.
