Academies Across The World Launch Policymaking Project

The InterAcademy Partnership – the global network of national science, medical, and engineering academies – has launched a new three-year project on scientific advice for global policymaking. The project will explore how to strengthen scientific input to the United Nations, governments, and other stakeholders aimed at achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Officially known as Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the SDGs are 169 aspirational targets for sustainable human development, covering issues such as ending poverty and hunger, ensuring healthy lives and quality education, combating climate change, and protecting the global environment.
