About LEEG-Net


LEEG-Net (Legal and Economic Empowerment Global Network – is a global pro bono partnership for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - #SDGAction40617. Having launched in January 2017 by a multidisciplinary expert team representing the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific and Oceania, LEEG-Net collaborates with UN Member States, especially developing countries, to help accelerate the SDGs through a human rights-based approach.

At a time when the global economy continues to recover from the COVID pandemic, disrupted energy and food markets and the cost-of-living crisis, human rights-based economic recovery and development have become more important than ever before.

In this context, LEEG-net has developed a human rights-based blueprint to help advance the SDGs and several projects that are beginning to make a positive impact on SDG-related policymaking and civil society actions at national and global levels. More information at:
