Virtual Event (NYC time)


This is the first of two sessions dedicated to the SDGs in-focus at the HLPF 2021. This session would look specifically STI to advance SDGs 1, 2, 3, and 16, including through their interlinkages with the rest of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Discussions could include new approaches to accelerate SDG progress through innovations, focused priorities for STI development and successful experiences from the pandemic that can be scaled up to have impact across multiple goals and targets as well as ways to improve the science-policy-society interface; increasing scientific collaboration globally for tackling major challenges.
