Welcome to the Science Summit at UNGA76, a major contribution to advancing Science for the UN SDGs. Online from 14- September - 5 October 2021.
ISC will organise the second edition of the UNGA76 Science Summit around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (SSUNGA76) in September 2021. The objective of the virtual meeting will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will demonstrate initiatives that provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of the SDGs, particularly in science infrastructure and capacity building. Science is and will enable sustainable economic, environmental, and societal development. Science is more than a funding prioritisation exercise: science is impacting all areas of policy-making and is playing a more critical role in how policy objectives are achieved and the consequent benefit to people everywhere, including responses to global challenges.
Engagement with policy leadership is more important than ever: UNGA76 is a unique forum for science to demonstrate how policy and political leadership can benefit from innovation. Central to this is the role of nonstate actors and the multilateral fora, which increasingly determine how priorities are set. Science needs to be part of this dialogue and inform outputs through thought leadership, evidence, insights, analysis, and innovation.

Registration is available here.

SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities
The SDG 10 is a universal and urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – to reduce inequality within and among countries by 2030. The goal, being adopted in 2015 is a follow-up of the partially achieved millennium goals.
Among others, this goal includes the empowerment and promotion of the social, economic and political inclusion of all, ensuring equal opportunity and reducing inequalities of outcome, adoption of policies, especially fiscal, wage and social protection policies, the improvement of the regulation and monitoring of global financial markets, and ensuring the enhanced representation and voice for developing countries in decision-making in global international economic and financial institutions. The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDG 10 in every context.
