Chance to review briefs submitted for the Global Sustainable Development Report
The open call for science briefs for the Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR) 2015 has resulted in the submission of 140 plus contributions. Providing a bottom-up sample of “crowd-sourced” sustainable development issues, the briefs cover topics from anti-biotic resistance, karst and caves, through to the health of the oceans. The briefs constitute pool of digestible knowledge, pointing policy-makers to critical new findings and emerging concerns.
The briefs have been made available on https://gsdr2015.wordpress.com/ . All those interested are invited to read and comment on the briefs; the outcome of the open comment/review will be taken into account in the preparation of the GSDR 2015 chapter on “emerging issues”.
All the briefs are available on the GSDR website: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/topics/science/crowdsourcedbriefs
The Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR) is a United Nations publication aiming to strengthen the science-policy interface at the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development, which replaced the Commission on Sustainable Development after Rio+20 as the main United Nations platform providing political leadership and guidance on sustainable development issues at the international level.
