On the road towards achieving the SDGs
SDG entrepreneurship fuelled by Copernicus Earth Observation
Copernicus Earth Observation data can help manage the Earth’s finite resources. One prototype developed during the 2019 G-STIC Copernicus hackathon addressed the challenge of monitoring Acid Mine Drainage to remedy adverse environmental impacts.
Champions of change fighting for sustainable development
Gro Harlem Brundtland, Damilola Ogunbiyi and Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim are true champions of change. Being part of the G-STIC community, they will make a difference in forwarding the implementation of integrated solutions for the SDGs.
Ensuring sustainable drinking water supply in rural areas
Almost 800 million people still lack adequate access to a sustainable drinking water supply. Gravity-driven membrane filtration technology has been used in several UNDP water management projects in rural areas in Cambodia and Indonesia.
How to enable technological innovations for the SDGs?
When it comes to fighting the impact of climate change, the time for business-as-usual is up. But how can we enable the breakthrough technological innovations that are vital for achieving the SDGs? And how do we ensure they work for the benefit of all people?
The Drawdown Review: climate solutions for a new decade
Project Drawdown is the world’s leading resource for actions that can be taken today to solve the climate change challenges we’re facing. The recently published Drawdown Review is a must-read for all people dedicated to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Nature-based solutions for climate-resilient societies
Nature-based solutions get increasing recognition as an indispensable part of our global effort to achieve the SDGs. According to the Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Manifesto, they are a vital complement to decarbonisation in establishing climate-resilient societies.
How Circular Economy Hotspots contribute to a circular economy
Circular Economy has made it into a worldwide concept in recent years. Circular Economy Hotspots, a series of events that highlight and promote efforts to foster innovation in the field of circular economy, provide interesting insights into local circular economy initiatives.
How digital technologies help build resilience for smallholders
The “Digital with Purpose: Delivering a SMARTer 2030” report by GeSI and Deloitte proves to be quite interesting. It quantifies how digital technologies can impact several SDGs, with case studies illustrating how they reduce social and economic inequalities.
Marine spatial planning to create space for a sustainable economy
Oceans and seas play a significant role in climate regulation. A sustainable blue economy, which covers all economic activities related to the world’s oceans and seas, calls for a strategic and integrated approach to planning the development of oceans and seas.
Spearheading technological innovation for the SDGs
Participants of the 2019 G-STIC conference sessions dived into concrete examples of market-ready solutions. In doing so, they helped pave the way for sensitising policymakers and evaluating the transformative potential of technological innovations.
Establishing a regional technological innovation platform
G-STIC joins forces with ISRTC, the International Sustainability, Resources & Technology Conference, in Oman. This joint mission confirms our unwavering commitment to international processes that forward Science, Technology and Innovation for the SDGs.
