The NextGen Database has been improved and expanded! This online, searchable database helps to identify potential new collaborators (and collaborations) for Next Generation. The database also allows the media, students, policy-makers, and the general public to identify Canadian experts working on global sustainable development issues including international development and humanitarian assistance, but also on domestic issues related to the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The NextGen database launched in 2017 and in its second phase in 2019, NextGen teamed up with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network Canada to link research in Canada to relevant SDGs by mapping areas of research around the SDGs/ Agenda 2030. NextGen mapped areas of research to the SDGs agenda to identify how researchers in Canada contribute to the implementation and understanding of the SDGs.
The Nextgen database is part of the Next Generation – Collaboration for Development program, a partnership between the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC) and the Canadian Association for the Study of International Development (CASID).
