25 August — 
GIZ projects in the Transport, Environment, Energy and Water in Asia (TUEWAS) sector have just made the topic of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a tad more visible and systematic with the launch of the new SDGs knowledge hub. Get an overview of the sector and a regional perspective across all 17 SDGs at www.

The site opens to the now iconic symbols of the 17 SDGs, each of which, when clicked, shows clickable links to related GIZ projects in the TUEWAS sector in the region. Besides background information on project objectives, description, field/s of intervention, this new feature is envisioned to identify synergy and pave way for future collaboration.

In principle, the hub is aligned with GIZ’s objective of supporting the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and facilitates reporting of our contributions in the TUEWAS sector in Asia to interested parties all over the world. Its launch is timely, as the next UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in November will undoubtedly draw global attention to progress towards the goals.

In doing its bit as an Asia-based network, TUEWAS strives to engage and contribute to implementing the Agenda and step up for a more integrated approach.

As part of our long-term efforts to strengthen the existing network and knowledge sharing, the website is envisioned as a cooperation platform and an information hub for all things related to TUEWAS and eventually leading to meaningful collaboration.

Financed through projects and programmes which GIZ is conducting on behalf of the German government, TUEWAS (Transport, Environment, Energy, and Water in Asia) serves as a platform for regional professional exchange and cooperation between GIZ experts in Asia and at GIZ head office. The network was established in Bonn, Germany in 2002 and currently connects over 50 projects across 16 Asian countries in the field of transport, environment, energy and water. Learn more, visit
