​SDGs Could Boost Citizen Science in Africa

The SDGs are a chance for Africa to give citizens a say in shaping local science activity and the innovations that follow from it

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a chance for Africa to give citizens a say in shaping local science activity and the innovations that follow from it, a United Kingdom conference has heard.

The explosion of science initiatives now taking place across the continent in the wake of the SDGs means local people need a say in what research is being done, according to a panel at the EuroScience Open Forum.

"The SDGs can be a beacon for innovation in the way research programmes are designed to include the people who are meant to benefit," explained Elizabeth Pollitzer, the director of Portia, an organisation that supports women in science.
