Debates on how best to promote sustainable and inclusive development are incomplete without a full consideration of issues of science, technology and innovation (STI).
Development is constantly fueled by innovation. The Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) often has coinciding and mutually reinforcing goals with other UN bodies; for example, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is mandated to reduce poverty using sustainable industrial development.
The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) outlines within its Human Development Report that development focuses on four measurements of achievements: health, education, income, and lastly the dimensions of participation and empowerment. Within this concept of development, there has been a rising merge towards the emergence of an “information society” as a developed society, where information sharing and the application of knowledge are easily accessible and permissible.
