Special event: STI and harnessing global opportunities for transformations in 2021

May 4 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The year 2021 is set to be a landmark year with major global events, such as the Food Systems Summit, the High-level Dialogue on Energy, the second global Sustainable Transport Conference, the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) and UN Climate Change Conference (COP26). This roundtable will examine the most impactful STI applications- as well as the most significant unsolved problems- in these areas, with the potential to simultaneously influence multiple SDG targets. Several of these correspond closely to the ‘entry’ points advanced in the scientific assessment of the Global Sustainable Development Report, 2019.
