Theme: Science-Policy Interface towards SDG



The integrated event of the 7th ISIE-AP7 and APRSCP15 will be a unique combination and rare opportunity for science-policy interface in Asia Pacific region concerning sustainability. The event will showcase Asia Pacific talent in scientific knowledge and appropriate policy options for the regional condition through interactive dialogue among scientists and government officials under one roof.

ISIE was founded in 2001 in Leiden, with “Science of Sustainability” as its core competence; while the ISIE-AP events have been organized by the active members in Asia Pacific to meet the regional dynamism. The APRSCP was founded in late 1990s, with participatory support from UNEP, UNIDO, ADB, USAID, EU, and more specifically the NCPCs1. The roundtable has gone through historical path of two major transformation in Asia Pacific; (1) from cleaner production to SCP/RECP & Circular Economy; and (2) from CP project implementation to SCP policy to science- policy interface.

The event promises to facilitate participation of scientists and national governments / LGUs to work hand-in-hand in improving the regional SDG roadmap based on scientific debate.
