The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA), International Council for Science (ICSU) and International Social Science Council (ISSC) are jointly organising the Expert Group Meeting on 'Science and Sustainable Development Goals'. The Expert Group Meeting will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on 20-21 March 2013.
The Expert Group Meeting is meant as an occasion both for the scientific community to discuss among itself how science can best inform the SDG process, and for the scientific community to initiate a dialogue with the policy makers, who are engaged in intergovernmental deliberations on the SDGs.
The aim of the EGM is to support informed policy-making by the OWG as it begins to deliberate on some of the key questions surrounding the conceptualization and formulation of the SDGs. The two-day meeting will be structured around expert panels, breakout group sessions and plenary discussions. On day two the EGM will present a summary of its work to Member States and other stakeholders at the UN Headquarters in an interactive dialogue.
An extensive meeting report will be posted soon as well.
