Issues

We invest in strategic thinking and fresh ideas for tackling the global challenges that shape our world. We prioritize issues with transformative potential for the Sustainable Development Goals and climate action, and track emerging issues at the frontier of the UN’s agenda so that the world can be better prepared for tomorrow’s needs.

We connect global policymakers with evidence of what works, and we seek to stimulate new thinking about innovation and reform that can help modernize the UN’s ability to deliver its core mission.
