Dear IPPN Community,

Welcome to the third IPPN Newsletter. This and subsequent editions will compile carefully selected resources related to policy integration in support of accelerated progress on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Integrated Policy Practitioners' Network (IPPN) aims to put at the fingertips of practitioners in the development community practical tools, methodologies and courses to strengthen capacities to address interconnected and interdependent development challenges. Nine UN agencies joined forces to launch the IPPN in November 2021. Since then, the network has grown steadily, with the development of a website, a resource library and a Knowledge Café webinar series to facilitate engagement, interaction and exchange of experience among integrated policy practitioners. Join us on this important journey!
