The SDGnexus Network promotes the Nexus approach for the establishment of its research framework. The Nexus approach goes beyond the investigation of single SDGs and allows for flexibility in identifying vital context-specific interlinkages between SDGs. Considering the main development challenges of our partner countries and the diverse potential of our partner institutions, we have identified five Nexus areas that will serve as a stepping stone for further research on different SDGs and their interlinkages. The SDGnexus Network Research Publications disseminates multidisciplinary research promoting the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. Our publications encompass a range of formats, including peer-reviewed Research Papers, Books and Book Chapters, Working Papers, and Other Publications. Spanning diverse nexus areas, these research contributions collectively drive the progress of context-specific interlinkages between SDGs.
