To inspire new forms of development partnership that facilitate the access of developing countries to policy-relevant knowledge in the field of economic and private sector development
Not creating another separate website or platform

but acting as a catalyst for consolidating existing knowledge sources, including local resources and facilitating access to them for developing countries.

Connectedness Index
Evidence points to the effect network participation has on economic growth – network participation increases information flows and knowledge transfers, allowing states to better participate in global economic networks and, in fact, globalization.

A division emerges between highly networked and less networked societies.
Connectedness should be central to the post-2015 agenda

Middle-income countries should enhance their development role

South-South cooperation as effective way for achieving development goals

Advance research on connectedness in industrialization
Addresses three fundamental issues:
Inclusive growth and prosperity
Sustainability and green industry
Financing sustainable industrial development
With a specific emphasis on solutions linked to knowledge networks and network governance.
How can middle-income countries be brought more effectively into the solution-finding processes and policy dialogues at global level?

How can developing countries really benefit from global knowledge sources, incl. that in MICs, and what is the role of the UN in enabling this?

How can network governance structures be effectively used for improving the connectedness of developing countries, particularly MICs?

How can the various stakeholders, including private actors, be brought into common solutions in a networked partnership for sustainable dev.?
This rapid economic growth brought with it various common challenges among middle-income countries, including that of sustainability and inclusiveness of development.

Knowledge-based network governance approaches can support policy- and decisionmakers, particularly among MICs, in forming solutions to these common challenges.

Based on this, new forms of global connectivity may emerge, with a stronger emphasis on South-South and triangular connections.
