dc.description.abstract The 14 core chapters of this book clearly show that Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) are critical for propelling the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (AfSD) and its accompanying 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). The institutions play the dual role in the SDGs space namely: teaching to impart ???basic??? knowledge and research to generate advanced knowledge mandate. The chapters also show that delivering the 2030 AfSD calls for a plethora of insights and skills. The SDGs agenda calls for a trans-, inter-, and multidisciplinary (TIM) approach as the spaces of engagement remain complex. Hence, discipline-oriented programming will often deliver incomplete solutions. To address this concern, this concluding chapter advances the notion of a teaching and research approach that embraces the TIM approaches in SDGs delivery by IHE and the communities they work in. en
