IAU HESD Survey Report

IAU HESD Survey Report: Accelerating Action for the SDGs in Higher Education

The report, published in January 2023, presents the findings and analyses trends from the third global survey on Higher Education and Research for Sustainable Development (HESD). IAU conducted the survey in 2022 and received 464 valid responses from higher education institutions in 120 countries were collected. The findings show that higher education and partnerships are essential to address the global challenges identified in the UN Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to build a more sustainable future together. Furthermore, the survey looked closer at partnerships, leadership and strategy for SD and the concept of Climate Change Education (CCE). This report provides data and thus shows the global commitment and responsibilities of many HEIs towards the 2030 Agenda and SD more generally.

The survey was conducted in collaboration with the following partners:

      • ASEF (Asia-Europe Foundation)
      • Crue (Conferencia de Rectores de Universidades Españolas)
      • MECCE (The Monitoring and Evaluating Climate Communication and Education Project)
