The Korea Centre for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology (WISET) held a Gender- Forum today dedicated to exploring how to further the important recommendations of the recent GS report ““The Role of Gender-based Innovations for the UN Sustainable Development Goals: Toward 2030: Better Science and Technology for All”. The report was produced following the recommendation at the GS6AP to integrate gender considerations in science and technology across all 17 of the UN SDGs. Its contributors came from organisations such as the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, the International Monetary Fund, UNESCO, universities and development organisations in 10 countries. The Korean members included Dr Paik Hee Young of KOFWST, Dr Jang Yong Suk of STEPI and Green Technology Center Korea President Changmo Sung. The Gender-Forum was a vital platform to gather expert insight to define the possible challenges that lay ahead and gather concrete recommendations for actions that will help with the successful implementation of the recommendations.
