SDG@WUR: Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

In September 2015 the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals: 17 goals and 169 targets for people, planet and prosperity for the next 15 years. Much research of Wageningen UR is connected with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). SDG@WUR is targeted at enhancing the SDGs within Wageningen UR, and at the same time looking for collaboration opportunities within and outside Wageningen UR.
