From our archives- 1860 17 years into founding Economist, James Wilson's most ambitious project partnering queen victoria in launching chartered bank by and for the quarter of peoples on india subcontinent stalls.
Wilson dies of diarrhea 9 months after landing in calcutta. 85 years later sir kenneth kemp (father in law of Economist's Norman Macrae writes up legalese of Indian Independence. Sir Ken did not know that partitioning was about to happen. Peoples of East pakistan draw colonial aera's shorterst straw - not only a colony of West Pakistan but blocked out of access to what have been south asia's superport. 23 years later cyclone kills a million peoples and shell oils regional young superstar ends his contract to start helping women build the new nation of Bangladesh. The greatest economic miracle produced by a billion asian mothers begin. The first network cooperation - oral rehydration ; 112 years after wilson's death illiterate village mothers first homework is how to mix boiled water sugar and salt to stop diarrhea killing one thord of infants in tropical villages. Inspired by this abed and 1 billion women map 30 cooperation platforms 1972-2019 - BRA-C (Bangladesh Rural Advancement Cooperation). First meta partnership BEAC UNICEF Tropical china; from 1996 leapfrog partners beyong vilages without electricity start to web end poverty's races. Japan and silicon valley ask abed to go international - vrac university with james grant as first world class colege begins 2001
meanwhile in 1890s london 2nd editor walter bagehot continues queen victoria's project - can the English Constitution end the slave making mentality of corpoartesd like East India company with a commonwealth constitution. Although many believe Victoria did plant this legacy for the 20th C royal family - not in time for east Insia comoany to ruin another quarter of the world's lives - the chinese after 1960 clsoe themselves to global trade rather than accept ultimatum to accept opium as a currency. Just as it takes peoples of the place we now call bnagaldesh 110 yeras to start freeing their own trade, so too contenetal china. By 1972 out of desperation both bangaldesh and china depend on raiing womens productivity from mear 0 to more than that of men in every community developing children. On the Bangladesg side follow the mapping of the reforemd oil company ceo fazle abed; on china tropical side note that one child polict meand half of all familiyies start to be dependednt on how brillainatly entrepreneurial their 20s something daughter becomes

Searches show that ER is a curriculum for valuing trust and youth especially girls by changing systems of education and community development economics. ER was founded as a media challenge of leadership purpose and friendship across nations at The Economist as man was racing to the moon in the 1960s- it was based on the hypothesis that it would be wise to put a deadline on sustainability system design. At some stage failure to educate and invest in sustainability would become exponentially irreversible. A deadline of 2025-2030 was thought to be wise.
In this worldwide economic model, communications TECH doubles every 7 years from 1946 to 2030- over 4000 times Moore! 2018-2019 is the last but 12th year for action learning sustainability. This diary aims to map the most exciting opportunities of each of the last countdown years

2022 STI Forum Secretariat
Organizer,
The Seventh Annual Multi-Stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the SDGs (STI Forum)

In this episode, we speak with the co-chairs of the Science, Technology, and Innovation or STI Forum–Mr. Sergiy Kyslytsya, the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations and Mr. Kennedy Godfrey Gastorn, the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Tanzania to the United Nations. They both shared their insights on advancing science and technology achievements while also addressing global challenges of inequality, digital divide, inclusion, and climate change, to name a few issues, through collaboration among different actors in society. We need novel ways to mitigate emerging risks to scientific research and we also need to further the collaboration among scientists, researchers, and policymakers in an ongoing dialogue in networks of trust and transparency to address the global challenges.

The STI Forum of the United Nations provides this space for scientific cooperation and collaboration. It is also an important space for reflections on global development problems and discussions on how science, technology, and innovation can help contribute to approaches and solutions to achieve the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. To know more and to register for the upcoming STI Forum, please go to https://sdgs.un.org/tfm/STIForum2022

[Transcript of the podcast]

Paulyn Duman: Welcome to the SDG learncast with me, Paulyn Duman. In every episode, I bring you insightful conversations around the subject of sustainable development and learning, helping us all to achieve a sustainable future.

In this episode, we will be speaking about science, technology and innovation otherwise known as STI, especially in the context of the STI Forum of the United Nations.

Science and technology is intricately meshed together with society. You cannot see one without the other. For example, a lot of people depend on their mobile phones, whether they are smartphones or analog phones, for daily living. A study by the Pew Research Center in 2019 reported that nearly 50% of adults said they could not live without their smartphones. In the COVID-19 pandemic, science research has tremendously helped reduce the spread of the coronavirus the same way that scientific research has addressed several diseases globally, both infectious and non-communicable ones. Innovation, which does not always require high technology or high investment, has helped millions of lives and we will speak more about this later in this episode.

For this episode, we have the honor to have with us the co-chairs of the STI Forum, Mr. Sergiy Kyslytsya, the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations and Mr. Kennedy Godfrey Gastorn, the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Tanzania to the United Nations.

Perhaps before we start, could you tell us about the Science, Technology, and Innovation Forum of the United Nations?

 

Ambassador Kennedy Godfrey Gastorn: The STI Forum is a venue where you facilitate interaction, matchmaking, and establishment of stakeholders, networks and partnerships. It’s also a platform that allows people to exchange ideas and share experiences on how science, technology, and innovation could further accelerate the implementation of sustainable development.

It’s also important to note that the STI Forum is able to identify lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic and discuss how to better mobilize STI for sustainable development. Furthermore, at the Forum, we anticipate that we’ll discuss how can we improve the science policy-society interface at all levels, and also increase international scientific collaboration for tackling the world’s most intractable challenges.

Now, in terms of participation, the Forum will bring together high-level policymakers and senior government officials, including ministers, scientists, research institutions, engineers, innovators, entrepreneurs, representative of organized science-acknowledged communities, the UN system and international organizations from various parts of the world. They will all come together under the umbrella of the upcoming STI Forum.

Now regarding the question on the topics that will be discussed during the forum, I can say that the forum will have two parts which are the ministerial session and which will focus primarily on science, technology and innovation for the SDGs and sustainable coming from COVID -19 pandemic. This session will also among others discuss best practices of technologies and innovation that have emerged during the COVID-19 crisis to tackle inequities or inequalities, particularly affecting vulnerable groups, including those equalizing access to good, quality healthcare, education and finance, and perhaps also, how can the national STI roadmaps and many other action plans can be aligned regionally and globally towards a more cost-effective SDGs-focused STI development.

 

Ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya: The STI Forum is exceptionally important to all countries, all the United Nations, because we can’t imagine any advances in the areas of responsibility of the United Nations without applying modern technologies and advancing science achievements. As the world becomes even more sophisticated, and it is very difficult sometimes even to learn about the advance of science, let alone use it in practice. So I’m very happy that scientists and scholars all around the world are so engaged in, and are happy to work with us politicians here in the United Nations for the benefit of the countries, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

UNESCO and Nokia to co-chair new UN Broadband Commission Working Group on AI Capacity Building

Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications expand opportunities for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. However, the benefits and risks of AI technology are not equally distributed across the world. There is an accelerating divide in terms of human and institutional capacities needed for AI and digital transformation.

Many governments worldwide are implementing digital transformation programmes to strengthen public services and citizen engagement using online platforms and technologies like AI. Digital governance, whether it concerns regulation of AI systems or protection of personal data, will mediate how societies leverage the economic potential of new technologies while minimising the risks.

Civil servants are important actors in shaping how governments and societies undergo digital transformation. They are often responsible for regulating technologies; devising strategies as well as providing incentives and an enabling environment for their creation, adoption, and use; shaping the infrastructure ecosystem in which technology will operate; and making decisions about public sector digital innovation and transformation. Effectively exercising this important digital governance function requires knowledge, competencies, and skills. The UN Broadband Commission has launched the Working Group on AI Capacity Building, to help build public sector capacities for digital innovation and transformation. The Working Group will be co-chaired by UNESCO and Nokia, and has Smart Africa, World Health Organization (WHO), 5Rights Foundation, European Telecommunications Satellite Organization (EUTELSO IGO) and International Science, Technology and Innovation Centre for South-South Cooperation (ISTIC) as some of its members.

Dr Tawfik Jelassi, UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Communication and Information, underlined the importance of “operationalizing a multi-stakeholder approach to include actors from the public sector, academia, civil society and the private sector in this capacity-building effort for AI and digital transformation”.

Ms Julia Jasinska, Head of International Relations & Trade Policy at Nokia, highlighted the core tenet of the Working Group that “technology alone is not enough; we also need to empower citizens and governments to make the best use of emerging technologies”.

The Working Group on AI Capacity Building will generate a knowledge base and recommendations that can underpin a knowledge platform that ensures public sector access to capacity building tools for AI and digital transformation. With the collective expertise of its members, the Working Group will analyze digital transformation-related use cases and good practices worldwide and develop a digital transformation and AI competency framework for civil services that can be adapted to the contexts of low- and middle-income countries.
