GYA members Aysha Fleming (Australia) and Uttam Babu Shrestha (Australia) will participate in a workshop on the UN SDGs which is being organised by the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) in partnership with the Association of Academies and Societies of Sciences in Asia (AASSA). It will identify targeted, locally relevant ways in which the academies can support the implementation of the UN SDGs, building on their own national and regional capacity. The workshop will engage all interested members of AASSA, together with Global Young Academy and National Young Academy members in the region, and national and regional policymakers. The workshop is the second of four regional workshops under the IAP project “Improving scientific input to global policymaking“.
The primary objective of the workshop is to help science academies build capacity and understanding of the science-policy interface at national, regional and global levels, using the SDGs as a framework.
