For those of you who did not have chance to visit the SDG Help Desk, below is a little brief, which will provide some useful information on the platform.

UNESCAP established the SDG Help Desk in response to requests for capacity development support from member states for developing integrated and coherent policies for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals, which were expressed at the 72th UNESCAP Commission Session. 

The SDG Help Desk was designed as a gateway to knowledge products and services related to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda from the internal resources of UNESCAP, as well as other knowledge providers and platforms from UN organizations and beyond. 

The SDG Help Desk provides opportunities for sustainable development practitioners and stakeholder to use to use interactive data portalsbest practicese-learning coursetoolboxesand to engage in peer-learning and dialogue through webinars among other areas.
