Goalkeepers Network

We proudly host the South African network of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Goalkeepers initiative. The Goalkeepers community is a global collective of collaborative and diverse changemakers. Members include both emerging and well-known leaders who live all over the world and represent an eclectic range of cultures, professions, and interests. As the Policy Innovation Lab we are proud to support this community in South Africa.

SDG reporting

We supported the National Planning Commission in drafting South Africa’s 2024 Voluntary National Review (VNR), a crucial report presented to the international community that documents the nation’s progress towards achieving the SDGs. VNRs aim to facilitate the sharing of experiences, including successes, challenges and lessons learned, with a view to accelerating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. VNRs also seek to strengthen policies and institutions of governments and to mobilize multi-stakeholder support and partnerships for the implementation of the SDGs.
