STEPS South Asia sustainability hubThe South Asia Sustainability Hub & Knowledge Network (SASH&KN) has three broad missions: education, research and outreach. It aims to develop a growing network of institutions and people committed to exploring pathways to sustainability in South Asia. It also aims to create a knowledge repository on sustainability, and act as a source for policy intervention and response in public discourse.

The hub is hosted by the Transdisciplinary Research Cluster on Sustainability Studies (TRCSS) at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). Launched in 2016, The South Asia hub is part of the STEPS Pathways to Sustainability Global Consortium.
