HLPF: Partnerships for Climate Action: the Science-Policy Nexus

Friday 12 July at 1:15–2:45 PM at Permanent Mission of Norway to the UN, 1 Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, 35th floor.

The Permanent Missions of Palau, St. Lucia,  Fiji and Norway to the United Nations and the University of Bergen would like to welcome your presence at this side event.

There will be a panel discussion which aims to show how science advice can contribute towards policy implementation of the 2030 Agenda. By combining the specific challenges of SDG13 (Climate Action) with the cross-cutting partnership ambitions of SDG17 (Partnerships for the Goals), the speakers will explore and exemplify multiple ways in which scientific knowledge and multilateral diplomacy are brought into close interaction for the SDGs.
