SDSN Afghanistan started the pilot the project of "Our University and SDGs - A Capacity Building Program for Universities" at Kateb University. The core objective of this program is to strengthen the position of universities and their contribution in the development process of Afghanistan using the Global Agenda which will be implemented in three phases as following:

  1. Rapid Self-Assessment for Learning: At this phase, policies, strategies, programs, curriculum, research and publication of universities will be evaluated based on SDGs principles and content to identify the current contribution and alignment or dis-alignment with SDGS.
  2. Capacity Building plan: At this phase, universities will develop a capacity building plan according to their current level of alignment or dis-alignment with SDGs principles and content. For better implementation of the plan, SDSN Afghanistan will provide technical support to universities. The support is provided through member organizations, international partners, business partners, leadership council member institutions, members of the Global Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN Global), and the Sustainable Development Goals Academy (SDG Academy).
  3. Impact Assessment plan: SDSN Afghanistan will evaluate the impact of the capacity building plan after a specific period of implementation to improve the design and implementation of the plan.

The first phase of the pilot project begun with an orientation workshop on Monday, August 24th, 2020 with the presence of chancellor Kateb University, senior managers, dean of faculties and head of departments, head of Kateb research center, and  head of quality assurance department.
