About the partners

The German Institute of Development and Sustainability (former Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik, DIE) is one of the world’s leading research institutions and think tanks for global sustainable development. Its work is based on the interplay between Research, Policy Advice and Training, building bridges between theory and practice for the past sixty years.

The Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) is an independent, international research institute. It has been engaged in environment and development issues at local, national, regional and global policy levels for more than a quarter of a century. SEI supports decision making for sustainable development by bridging science and policy.

The NDC-SDG Connections tool was initiated as a joint initiative of the Klimalog project at IDOS and SEI’s Global Finance. It has subsequently been uptaken by the ClimEQ project.  

ClimEQ seeks to enable significant advancement in evidence-based policy learning and tool development in its aim to address three critical knowledge gaps: i) the nature of goal conflicts and synergies between climate change, inequality and other SDGs from a comparative perspective; ii) policy coherence as a politically contested rather than purely administrative approach to overcome goal conflicts; and iii) sources of incoherence as found not only in terms of institutions, but also interests and ideas.

The NDC-SDG Connections data visualisation and website has been designed and developed by DataDesign Berlin.
