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 Working Paper Series disseminates multidisciplinary research promoting the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. The Working Papers are published to stimulate an active discussion about innovative approaches towards transformative change and building bridges between science, education, and development. The Working Papers have not been peer-reviewed and constitute “work in progress” but underwent an internal quality control.
