Our mission is to enhance the positive impact of agencies, governments and corporations on sustainable development in low- and medium income countries. For that purpose, we refer to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s- the global development agenda) as general framework of action. We achieve this by generating evidence and applied knowledge for the practical implementation of socio-economic change, working in partnerships. Our knowledge is disseminated by advising, teaching, convening and publishing. Our heritage of the historical premises in Amsterdam serves as a global host and an international knowledge campus, which aspires to promote intercultural cooperation.
