Longitudes

5 min read

This is part of a series on the Global Goals for Sustainable Development, in collaboration with the Stockholm Resilience Centre. This article focuses on goal 9 – Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.

Sustainable Development Goal 9 calls for resilient infrastructure and inclusive, sustainable industrialization, and also refers to the need to “foster innovation”.

[pullquote align=right] Innovation needs to be embedded across the goals.[/pullquote]These two words at the end of the goal’s text are fundamental to the challenge of sustainable development.

Beyond goal 9, science, technology and innovation can contribute to goals on food, health, water, energy, infrastructure, cities, sustainable consumption and production, and even – through the role of Information and Communication Technologies in enabling citizen participation, transparency and accountability – improved governance.

Rather than being siloed into goal 9, innovation needs to be embedded across the goals.
