From 21 September to 30 November 2020, contribute to this new initiative with research and knowledge from International Geneva, exploring how science can be translated into policy and action to achieve the SDGs.

The United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD), the Geneva Science Policy Interface (GSPI), the Think Tank Hub, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Switzerland and the SDG Lab are calling for inputs exploring how science can be translated into policy and action to achieve the SDGs, with research and knowledge from International Geneva.

All submitted research will then be synthesized into three papers and discussed with the participants at a meeting in Geneva early 2021. The final outputs will feed the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), influencing critical political decision-making processes.

You have until 30 November to submit your research to the evidence box, choosing one of the three entry points regrouping the SGDs that will be reviewed at the HLPF in July 2021:

  1. Human well-being and capabilities: Goal 1, Goal 3, Goal 5, Goal 13, Goal 16, Goal 17.
  2. Sustainable and just economies: Goal 5, Goal 8, Goal 10, Goal 12, Goal 13, Goal 17.
  3. Food systems and nutrition patterns: Goal 1, Goal 2, Goal 5, Goal 13, Goal 17.

All types of evidence are welcome: peer-reviewed quantitative, qualitative and mixed method studies, review articles, as well as case studies and stories, covering the local, national, regional and global levels.

This project is funded by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA).
