With this question in mind, the annual Multi-stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals (STI Forum) convened a diverse range of innovators, researchers and policy makers in New York on 5 and 6 June to explore advances in science and technology that can help achieve sustainable development that leaves no one behind.

Participants at the Forum discuss how to disseminate and share such solutions.
