How researchers can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals

The German Committee Future Earth has published a new report outlining the important role that science must play in international efforts to curb climate change and move toward sustainability. The report, titled "The contribution of science in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals,” captures the results of two recent conferences that explored how researchers can contribute to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This agreement, adopted in 2015, laid out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a set of targets that guide how nations grow in ways that are equitable, just and sustainable.
