Is the World Keeping Up with

"Financing for Sustainable Development?"

12 APRIL 2022:  Developing countries still have to regain lost ground from the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has put more countries at risk of debt distress, constrained their fiscal space and hampered economic growth. The war in Ukraine is exacerbating all these challenges. In this context, the 2022 Financing for Sustainable Development Report identifies a “great finance divide” – the inability of poorer countries to raise sufficient resources and borrow affordably for investment.

The seventh annual Multi-Stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the SDGs (STI Forum) will be held from 5 to 6 May 2022. The Forum will be convened by the President of ECOSOC H.E. Mr. Collen Vixen Kelapile who has appointed two co-chairs - H.E. Mr. Kennedy Godfrey Gastorn, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Tanzania to the United Nations, and H.E. Mr. Sergiy Kyslytsya, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations. As per its mandate, the Forum will be organized by the UN interagency task team on STI for the SDGs (IATT), convened by UN-DESA and UNCTAD, and the 10-Member Group of high-level representatives appointed by the Secretary General.

As in previous years, the theme of the STI Forum will be closely aligned with that of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), to be held from Tuesday, 5 July, to Thursday, 7 July, and from Monday, 11 July, to Friday, 15 July 2022, under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council, but have an exclusive focus on the role and contributions of science, technology and innovation. The HLPF in 2022 will review in-depth Sustainable Development Goals 4 on quality education, 5 on gender equality, 14 on life below water, 15 on life on land, and 17 on partnerships for the Goals. The upcoming HLPF will take into account the different and particular impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic across all Sustainable Development Goals and the integrated, indivisible and interlinked nature of the Goals.

Accordingly, the theme for the STI Forum 2022 will be: “Science, technology and innovation for building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.

As a further point of reference, resolution A/RES/76/213 on “Science, technology and innovation for sustainable development” was adopted by the Second Committee of the General Assembly on January 7th, 2022. The resolution contains guidance for the work of the Technology Facilitation Mechanism.

Keep on tracking . . .

There are two facts the whole world can

agree upon. 

One fact is that the duration of an 

era referred to as a

“M i l l e n n i u m”  is  1,000 Years.

Another undeniable fact is that there

 

certainly is . . .

“MUCH WORK TO

 

 BE DONE”

“N O W”

 

and for many generations to come.

An applaudable accomplishment is to build

a house with all the necessities, comforts

and trimmings.  But an even more

praiseworthy and  rewarding  

satisfaction is to

“s u s t a i n   t h e   h o u s e ”

and all of its benefits after it’s

been successfully built.

 

The same applaudable rewards and

satisfaction should also be sought

when efforts are made in terms of

successfully accomplishing

SDGs

“Sustainable Development Goals.”

As the world community has crossed

the threshold of a new Century and

Millennium, global situations

wherein Humanity’s poorest

of the poor is yet prevalent.  Multitudes

of  the  poor  and  helpless  are  yet

languishing around the world in

utter neglect and stagnation.

The  painful  sufferings  of

the poor - now before

the eyes of Nations

great and small - are stark reminders 

of  the  need  to unite with carefully

planned   and   achievable   goals:  

developmental objectives that can

result in “sustainable” outcomes

suitable for the benefit

and wellness

of Humanity as a whole.

The many willing and helping hands that

work to achieve sustainable ends are

the very hands that are shaping

a better world for future

generations – already with us today.
