The event will build synergies with ongoing STI roadmap collaborations with other strategic partners and will use substantive inputs from the 10 Member Group, and other key stakeholders. It will help participants to use the STI roadmaps as complementary tools for policy making, building capacity and scaling up adoption of countries' STI for SDGs Roadmaps. It will also discuss the path forward for the Partnership in Action and assess the relevance of STI4SDG roadmaps and related capacity building for accelerating progress towards the SDGs.
The STI Forum will facilitate discussions on science, technology and innovation cooperation in support of the SDGs. In addition to providing the mandated inputs for the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development to be held from 10 to 19 July 2023, the Forum will also take a broader look at the contribution of STI to the achievement of all the SDGs in recognition of the September mid-term review of SDG progress.
