The second annual Multi-stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals (STI Forum) will take place on 15-16 May 2017 at UN Headquarters in New York. The theme of the 2017 STI Forum will address the topic “Science, Technology and Innovation for a Changing World - Focus on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, and 14.” These are the SDGs that are on the agenda at the 2017 meeting of the High-Level Political Forum for Sustainable Development in July:

  • Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
  • Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  • Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  • Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
  • Goal 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
  • Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development

As part of the Technology Facilitation Mechanism mandated by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the STI Forum was established to “provide a venue for facilitating interaction, matchmaking and the establishment of networks between relevant stakeholders and multi-stakeholder partnerships in order to identify and examine technology needs and gaps, including with regard to scientific cooperation, innovation and capacity-building, and also in order to help facilitate development, transfer and dissemination of relevant technologies for the sustainable development goals.”
