G-STIC aims to accelerate the development, dissemination and deployment of technological innovations that enable the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). G-STIC is focused on building knowledge bases and global expert networks to support the technological transitions that are needed for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
G-STIC facilitates the co-design and co-production of knowledge and solutions that are needed to implement the climate change agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, by fostering collaboration among Sustainable Technology & Innovation communities.
