The Regional Bureau's science support strategy 2010-2013: meeting society's needs with science-based solutions
This strategy emphasizes the need to better understand the complex relationships between development and emerging challenges such as climate change, pollution, population growth and environmental degradation that cause hazards to become more severe and frequent, and to approach them in a holistic way in order to provide concrete, workable, and context-appropriate solutions to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and improve people’s lives. It highlights the importance of science in addressing global development issues and aims at promoting science, technology and innovation as a solution to achieving sustainable development. The publication is available on the UNESCO site.
