Future Earth call for comments on UN global goals draft
On 2 June the United Nations released the Sustainable Development Goals "zero draft", to be agreed at the UN Summit in September.
The zero draft will be negotiated at the next intergovernmental meetings (22-25 June) in New York. Future Earth invites comments from the research community and other stakeholders on the draft document with relation to:
1. The role of science in the supporting the Post 2015 Development Agenda.
2. The scientific grounding of the text.
Science and technology have a significant role in the means and implementation of the goals, including in the development of indicators (to be agreed in March 2016). Please also note that the discussion on the number of goals and targets, and on the description of targets, has concluded and it is unlikely this discussion will re-open.
