The focus is on designing ways for SANORD partners to utilize and strengthen partnerships as part of meeting the needs of the UN 2030 agenda. The SANORD Conference in Bergen, Norway, will be a meeting place for trans-disciplinary exchange of ideas and research for scholars and institutions in the Nordic and Southern-African regions.
