This year has presented all of us with significant personal and organizational challenges. With that in mind, WGSI is going on hiatus to restructure and better plan for the evolving funding landscape. We’d like to thank you, our institutional and project partners, for your dedication and creativity over the past year in advancing implementation of the SDGs at the community level. We’ve been energized by the many conversations we’ve had with you. This work remains our core focus and we look forward to reaching out after our restructuring.
