Scientific Cooperation: CEI contribution to UN Agenda 2030

The “Trieste Declaration on Science” stressed that “cooperation between the CEI and the United Nations (UN) should be enhanced through a stronger connection with the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. This aspect was recently mentioned in the UNGA Resolution A/75/L.16 on “Cooperation between the United Nations and the Central European Initiative”, with point 10 pointing out that UNGA “appreciates the outcome of the meeting of the ministers responsible for research, innovation and higher education in the Central European Initiative member States held on 13 December 2019 in Trieste under the presidency of Italy, stressing the importance of enhanced cooperation between the Initiative and the United Nations on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. As a first step in this direction, a deep and comprehensive analysis was carried out and a study was elaborated by the think-tank Public Strategy for Sustainable Development (LINK), entitled “Contribution of CEI to UN Agenda 2030 and its implementation in CEI Member States” . This includes a thorough overview of good practices and recommendations on how to further integrate Agenda 2030 in CEI activities, as well as how the implementation of SDGs features in strategies and institutional arrangements of all CEI countries.
