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.

Dr. Hanan Ibrahim Mudawi: worked more than 20 years in the research field of biopesticides with an aim to introducing sustainability to the environment and restore biodiversity.  She is an Associate Professor in biopesticides and plant pathology at the department of Bio-pesticides and Bio-fertilizers, Environment, Natural Resources and Desertification Research Institute, National Center for Research (NCR), Khartoum, Sudan. She holds a Ph.D in biopesticides from Sudan Academy of Sciences, M.Sc (plant protection) from University of Khartoum and B.Sc (Honors) in agricultural sciences from University of Gazera. Following the completion of her Ph.D, her  main research  area were: Isolation and identification of soil and plant microbiomes, biological control, plant pathological aspects in fungal infections, host-pathogen interactions, weed management, in  addition  to extraction, identification, fixation, culturing and preservation of nematodesand seed health. Her research priority is the formulation of Trichoderma spp. and Bacillus spp., their mode of action and disseminating the importance of biopesticides to farmers. Throughout her career, Dr. Hanan has participated in numerous training programs and conferences and held training courses in a variety of fields. She is actively involved in many projects related to organic agriculture, bio-compost, weed management, and formulation of natural biocides. She has supervised undergraduate and postgraduate students and published in peer-reviewed journals. Besides being a member of many scientific societies, she provides consultation services for private companies in plant pathology and nematology.  She is currently the director of scientific Affairs at NCR.
