GIZ projects in the Transport, Environment, Energy and Water in Asia (TUEWAS) sector have just made the topic of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) more visible and systematic with the launch of the new SDGs knowledge hub. An overview of the sector and a regional perspective across all 17 SDGs can be found at www. tuewas-asia.org/sdgs/ .
The site opens to the now iconic symbols of the 17 SDGs, each of which, when clicked, shows links to related GIZ projects in the TUEWAS sector in the region. In addition to background information on member projects and fields of intervention, knowledge products such as publications and training materials are now available for download.
In principle, the hub is aligned with GIZ objective of supporting the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and facilitates reporting of 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 continues to strive to engage and contribute to implementing the Agenda and adopting a more integrated approach.
As part of its 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.
