Lecture 1. The SDGs in Science and Technology for Social Development - Inácio Arruda, Social Technology - Sônia da Costa, Food and Nutrition Security - Luciane Costa (MCTI)
Lecture 2. Innovation in biodiversity and the requirements of a new ecological paradigm - Glauco Villas Boas (Fiocruz)  
Introduction and aims: Science, technology and innovation (STI as referred to in the UN 2030 Agenda) is a central tool for SDG implementation extending our focus beyond productivity measurement connecting economical, social and environmental pillars. This session aims at dealing with science and development inspired by the SDG's holistic way of combining large challenges, particularly related to food, nutrition, care of our planet regarding biodiversity, and strong institutions for the SDG.
Abstract: STI is pivotal in contemporary social development, addressing global challenges, and improving lives. Goals include sustainable development, poverty eradication, health enhancement, environmental preservation, and equality promotion. Ethical principles, social justice, and public participation are crucial to prevent inequalities and harm. STI for social development integrates sustainability, social responsibility, and equity, aiming at societal well-being. Key focus areas include Food and Nutrition Security by 2030, aligning with Goals 2, 3, 12, and 15 emphasizing sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems while halting biodiversity loss. Brazil is actively involved, fostering collaboration between the government and society, investing in research networks, and emphasizing intersectoral cooperation and social participation. The Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MCTI) funds numerous centers across the country, driving progress in food and nutrition security.
