Launch of Online Platform for the Technology Facilitation Mechanism – 2030 Connect
During the 2020 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), the UN launched its new online platform for information on existing science, technology and innovation initiatives, mechanisms and programmes - 2030 Connect. This platform is designed to facilitate access to information, knowledge and experience, as well as best practices and lessons learned, on science, technology and innovation facilitation initiatives and policies.
2030 Connect (which is a 'Technology Facilitation Mechanism') was designed by the Inter-Agency Task Team, which is a network of UN agencies working to advance science, technology and innovation for sustainable development. Currently responsible for the platform is the Department of Economic and Social Affairs’ Division for Sustainable Development Goals (DESA/DSDG) which monitors and updates 2030 Connect.
