The Science-Policy Interface (SPI) has become an increasingly important component of sustainable development within the United Nations system. It provides the foundation for empirically-based policies, facilitates the use of science as an enabler in policy implementation and review, and provides a unique scientific lens into monitoring impact. Furthermore, SPIs have been integral in identifying emerging priorities, drawing links between the interconnected nature of thematic issues, and devising solutions to address challenges and barriers to progress.
Do you have a science background? Do you believe science, technology, and innovation have a role in shaping, enabling, and enhancing sustainable development initiatives? Do you want to promote a more data-driven and evidence-based approach to policy?
If you answered “YES” to any of those questions, fill out an interest form below to join the Youth Science-Policy Interface Working Group within the UN Major Group for Children and Youth. Anyone is welcome!
Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and comments. We look forward to talking soon and operationalize SPIs within our UN MGCY activities.
