About the Knowledge Hub

Welcome to the online platform of the SSE Knowledge Hub for the SDGs!

An initiative of the UN Inter-Agency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy (UNTFSSE), implemented by the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD), the SSE Knowledge Hub for the SDGs aims to enhance awareness of and contribute to the body of knowledge on social and solidarity economy (SSE) as a means of implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This free, open-access online platform is a repository for research-based outputs produced by or for the SSE Knowledge Hub for the SDGs.

Users can sort the resources posted on the platform by language, SDG, and country. A free-text search function is also available.

We are constantly looking for original, high-quality writing that enhances awareness of and contributes to the body of knowledge on SSE as a means of implementation of the SDGs. Click here if you wish to add a paper or think piece to the SSE Knowledge Hub for the SDGs.
