A Partnership in Action on STI for SDGs Roadmaps is proposed to be established to demonstrate the global leadership in advocacy and action required to create the political momentum, adopt and further refine the joint guidebook, drive practical solutions, and mobilize public support and multi-stakeholder engagements on STI for SDGs roadmaps. Focus will be on translating the political ambitions into needed policy and practice change, and addressing the immediate global challenges such as COVID-19.
The Partnership in Action is a multi-stakeholder, informal technical group to support the STI Roadmap work in the context of the Technology Facilitation Mechanism.
The Partnership in Action on STI for SDG Roadmaps, aligning its work with the Technology Facilitation Mechanism, will incubate and scale-up international cooperation on STI for SDGs, building initially on the stakeholders’ voluntary initiatives.
