About Advocacy Unified Network : AUN
A Global Public Policy Research and Advocacy organization
The Advocacy Unified Network: AUN is a Global Public policy Research and Advocacy organization headquartered in the Hague, Netherlands, at the crossroads between politics and policy. It is a non-profit, non-partisan think tank and research organization that promotes effective and efficient democratic governance through more profound and meaningful involvement of the stakeholders in the policy-making process. Global challenges like the climate crisis, COVID-19 pandemic, rising inequalities, and protracted conflict are problems that cannot be dealt with in isolation. The way countries respond, and the solutions they develop must be inclusive and integrated. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) ended in 2015 and had gaps and shortcomings. To overcome those and create "The Future We Want," the UN built the Sustainable Development Goals on the principles agreed upon in Resolution A/RES/66/288 (a non-binding document released due to Rio+20 Conference held in 2012). After a series of Negotiations on the Post-2015 Development Agenda from January 2015 to August 2015 involving the UN's 193 Member States and the global civil society, a final document was adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015 in New York. And On 25 September 2015, the 193 countries of the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 Development Agenda titled "Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". This schedule has 92 paragraphs. Paragraph 51 outlines the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the associated 169 targets and 232 indicators.
With the advent of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with its all-inclusive approach, new collaboration models like the Advocacy Unified Network: AUN are transforming the way different sectors approach and tackle shared sustainable development risks and opportunities. So, to advocate for policy reforms and organize public resources in support of the SDGs, unlock additional resources, and enhance capabilities to achieve better implementation, ADVOCACY UNIFIED NETWORK: AUN stands for globally, with a relentless focus on International Trade and Commerce, International relations and politics, International and Regional cooperation mechanisms, Conflicts with its causes, effects and regulations, Democracy and Civil rights, Environmental laws, and global concerns, Labor, Art and Culture and Migration and Trafficking issues. It forms eight broad categories of the Advocacy Unified Network functioning.
