The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) is pleased to launch the SDG.Guide “Getting Started with the SDGs”. Available as an online resource and a booklet, this guide aims to help stakeholders, including national and local governments, businesses, academia and civil society, understand the 2030 Agenda, start an inclusive dialogue on SDG implementation, and prepare SDG-based national development strategies.

The guide offers practical suggestions for how to get started with implementing the 2030 Agenda, including how to measure current performance and how to prepare a roadmap for the design of SDG strategies. It also includes tools to support the design of sector- and goal-based strategies to achieve the SDGs.

The guide is currently available in English. Translations into Spanish, French, Portuguese, Mandarin, and possibly other languages are expected in early 2016. A Google translation function is available on the SDG.Guide website.

We hope you will find this resource useful and welcome your comments and suggestions. These will inform subsequent versions of the guide.
