Our mission is to enhance the positive impact of agencies, governments and corporations on sustainable development in low- and middle-income countries. For that purpose, we refer to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) as a general framework for action. We achieve this by generating evidence and applied knowledge for the practical implementation of socio-economic change and global health care, together with our partners. Our knowledge is disseminated through advising, teaching, convening and publishing. Our historical premises in Amsterdam serve as a global host and a campus for international knowledge exchange, whereby we aspire to promote intercultural cooperation.
