Recordings available: Environmental Science-Policy Solutions and Pathways

plus Logo Stockholm +50 associated event

In conjunction with the UN Stockholm +50 conference, SDSN Northern Europe and SDSN Kenya invited SDSN members and others worldwide in a discussion on how to create action with science-policy for the environmental dimension of sustainable development. Now the recordings from all the talks are available.

The event offered a great discussion on science-policy and creating action for the environmental dimension of sustainable development. Here we have gathered the recordings from all the talks!

In addition, we want to highlight three take-home messages:

1) If you are an environmental scientist and have upcoming new research results, please publish as soon as possible to help UNEP in the work for the upcoming Global Environmental Outlook report.
2) UNEP want to engage environmental scientists and solution-oriented experts to assist in the upcoming global environmental assessment work.
3) Given the stagnating development of SDG implementation described in the recent Sustainable Development Report and the sixth Global Environmental Outlook, science-policy interfaces are more important than ever.
