Southern Voice is an open platform for think tanks contributing to the global dialogue on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Its ultimate aim is to address the existing ‘knowledge asymmetry’ and ‘participation deficit’ in the dialogue on development. It does this by producing, promoting, and disseminating evidence-based policy analysis by researchers from Global South countries.

Since its inception in 2012, Southern Voice has evolved into a vibrant network of 51 Think Tanks from Africa, Latin America and Asia. They are all dedicated to leveraging quality local data and research. The aim is to enhance the debate on the SDGs and increase the 2030 Agenda’s impact on the South.
