Position paper from the Scientific and Technological Community Major Group
Every year the Science and Technological Community Major Group (STC MG) for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) compiles and submits a position paper on the theme of the High-level Political Forum (HLPF). The primary audiences for the position paper are UN Member States and their permanent missions. The position paper is included in the official documentation of the HLPF.
This year’s position paper seeks to bring together the latest scientific evidence and thinking from the Scientific and Technological community to set out ways to support the full implementation of the SDGs while building a sustainable recovery from COVID-19. The position paper therefore seeks to reflect on responses to the COVID-19 crisis, and how these can be better steered to both advance the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and end the pandemic.
