Exploring the role of law and governance in technology and innovation for sustainable development: insights from the 2018 IUCN academy of environmental law colloquium

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Science, technology and innovation are often heralded as a source of solutions to global environmental problems. They are identified as major pillars of the means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, cutting across implementation of all SDGs, and they are integral in SDG 17 on strengthening the means of implementation and revitalizing the global partnership for sustainable development. At the same time, technology and innovation carry risks and pose challenges, which need to be addressed within the legal and policy frameworks. What is the role of law and governance in better leveraging the opportunities arising from technology and innovation, distributing their benefits and managing the associated challenges and risks?
