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.

Singapore
Tamara spent the first half of her career in Europe and Asia in energy, financial services and fund management, governing trading floors in London, New York and Asia Pacific. Having earned her stripes at Centrica Plc, BP Oil International, Deutsche Bank and Macquarie Bank, she returned to Singapore in 2012.
On home ground, Tamara served Westpac Banking Corporation and then her country.  At GIC Pte Ltd, Singapore’s Sovereign Wealth Fund, she contributed to digital transformation and sustainability initiatives, building relationships across the financial ecosystem worldwide. This ignited her to embark upon a portfolio career centred in finance, digital adoption and sustainability.
At present, Tamara works at all levels across industries to better the finance ecosystem and further social enterprises through sustainable business practices. She leverages her experience and her education in Law and Applied Accounting to boost organisations and causes focused on equality and education, including Conjunct Consulting, South East Asia’s first social change consultancy, and the People Centered Internet.
Tamara attained her Executive Masters in Business Administration from INSEAD whilst heavily-pregnant with her second child, which she confesses to being “efficient but not necessarily recommended”. She recharges through appreciating food and drink in excellent company, then exercising and dieting in solitude. She is devoted to her two young sons, who have stretched her out of her comfort zone and into efforts to master ball sports and patience.
