Women in Science for Sustainable Development
Making the inclusive world envisioned in the United Nations 2030 Development Agenda a reality will require the inclusion of women in science in decision-making and
policy formulation and implementation, at all levels of government, private sector, diplomacy, academia and other sectors. This requires clear consideration on the role of
women in science in the development strategies.  It also requires from policy-makers rethinking on the manner in which policies are conceived and delivered.  

There are a great deal of opportunities and challenges at policy, organizational and individual levels for maximizing the contribution of women in science for the achievement
of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals and its 2030 Development Agenda.

The Royal Academy of Science International Trust and through the Science Princess Campaign will provide opportunities for partnership, networking and matchmaking with
women- in-science experts to support innovative solutions for sustainable development.

Further, RASIT, and through the Campaign’s activities, will provide the platform for dialogue between women in science, the public and policymakers in identifying the
challenges and solutions that effectively meet the needs of societies.

  • Women in Innovation and Connectivity High-Level Panel to be held annually during the United Nations Economic and Social Council Science, Technology and
    Innovation Annual Forum.
