Building a strong science policy interface for sustainable development requires a significant increase in the level of public participation as well as assessments and analyses that are credible, salient and relevant. The question facing nations today is how to ensure that international agreements and policies can support the achievement of globally agreed goals, whilst being coherent with differentiated solutions at regional, national and local levels. The lecture will explore this questions in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals, making specific reference to ongoing deliberations at the United Nations, recent UNEA Resolutions on the use of alternatives approaches and visions, the facilitation of national open data policies, and ensuring greater access to and use of “grey literature”, local, indigenous and traditional knowledge, citizen science, big data and communities of practice in developing transition pathways and policies to secure the "Future we want."
