Organized by the Government of the Republic of Serbia, together with the Government of Japan, European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and UN Inter-Agency Task Team for STI for SDGs, the event will discuss the role of STI for SDGs in the post-COVID 19 recovery context.
The countries active in the Global Pilot Programme for STI for SDGs Roadmaps will present their cooperation with UN agencies in increasing the development of national STI systems, mapping the STI capacities and stakeholders and facilitating evidence for informed-policy making and better cooperation in crises. STI for SDGs Roadmaps should serve as potential pathways to sustainable recovery and future resilience. This joint UN initiative provides support for the design and implementation of STI for SDGs roadmaps and offers a platform for learning from practical experiences and success stories in order to prepare for the Decade of Action and Delivery.
