Regional Dialogue on Sustainability Science Policy to Support the Post-2015 Development Agenda

Within the framework of Malaysia FIT Porgramme on the “Science Harnessed for ASEAN Regional Policy – SHARP” and Japan FIT Programme on the “Sustainability Transformation Across the Region – STAR”, UNESCO Jakarta will organize a regional workshop on Sustainability Science to develop a policy paper and strategy to introduce it to the next ASEAN Plan of Action on Science and Technology 2016‐2020 and to develop a regional framework and tools to implement sustainability science.
The workshop will also review and discuss the current status of sustainability science particularly in higher education, research and policy, globally, and more specific in the Asia‐Pacific region with regard to already established networks of experts, their approaches and methodologies. A group of international experts from diverse backgrounds will be invited to develop further the conceptual framework of sustainability science, and propose answers to the following general question: how can sustainability science address economy‐environment interactions and contribute to sustainable development in the Asia‐Pacific Region?
