We are excited to share the release of our latest brief, EVALSDGs Insight #18: Evaluating Quality of Science towards achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. It aligns with the UN Secretary-General’s emphasis in 2023, who said that “scientific and technological progress is integral to supporting our efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”.

This insightful brief showcases the pivotal role of science in achieving the SDGs; it aims to underscore the importance of properly evaluating the quality of scientific research in the context of sustainable development.

Science forms the bedrock of innovation, providing the necessary foundation for new approaches, technologies, and solutions to tackle global challenges. Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) are crucial drivers for societal change and the achievement of the SDGs. To effectively contribute to the SDGs, mainstream science must be credible, inclusive and mission-driven.

Aligned to CGIAR’s 2030 Research and Innovation Strategy, its Research for Development (R4D) interventions primarily align with several SDGs, including:

  • SDG 2: Food Production and Security
  • SDG 5: Gender Inclusion
  • SDG 13: Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation
  • SDG 17: Productive Partnerships
