Southern Voice is a network of think tanks created in 2012 to contribute to the global dialogue on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and increase the impact of the South’s 2030 Agenda, thus addressing the “knowledge asymmetry” and “participation deficit” in the development dialogue. It produces, promotes and disseminates evidence-based policy analysis by researchers from countries in the Global South. Today, 51 think tanks from Africa, Latin America and Asia are part of the network.
