Africa and the Sustainable Development Goals


In 2015 WUN formed a Global Africa Group to enhance the opportunities – enabled by our global network – to build research collaborations, innovations and impact in support of Africa’s development agenda. The Global Africa Group builds on the existing expertise and international partnerships amongst the Worldwide Universities Network’s members, in Africa and abroad, to identify sustainable and equitable solutions to critical local, regional and global challenges of relevance to Africa.

We are delighted to invite you to the virtual launch of the Global Africa Group book, Africa and the Sustainable Development Goals. Attendees are invited to meet the editors of Africa and the Sustainable Development Goals and participate in a live Q&A session with its contributors.  

This is one of the first academic publications to comprehensively and critically engage with the intersection of the Sustainable Development Goals and African development agendas. Published by Springer in 2019, it presents multidisciplinary research that captures the necessary complexity and breadth of the theory and practice of sustainable development on the continent. 

Register here for the event, which will be held on Monday, 16 November 2020, from 15.00-16.00 SAST.
