Annual Multi-stakeholder Forum

The Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) cordially invites you to the 1st Annual Multi-Stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In 2015, South Africa with other member states of the United Nations (UN) adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda). In committing to the 2030 Agenda, South Africa assessed its alignment to the National Development Plan (NDP) and realised the critical role and cross-cutting nature and contribution of science, technology and innovation (STI) will play in implementing these goals. The UN Multi-stakeholder Forum on STI meetings called for member states to develop and implement inclusive STI for SDG action plans/roadmaps or strategies as part of the national responses to the 2030 Agenda
