  3. 3. SEPED and Sustainable Development Goals (ODS) In 2015, the United Nations Member States committed to implementing a universal and integrated agenda entitled "Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". Brazil, through the Federal Government, must guide articulated and integrated actions to internalize and embody the 2030 Agenda, which contains 17 Sustainable Development Objectives (SDOs). The internalization of SDOs provides for the adaptation of the 169 global goals to the Brazilian reality and the definition of national indicators aligned with the global ones. SEPED has promoted initiatives aimed at enhancing ST & I contributions to achieve ODS-related goals. Integrated actions involving researchers, public managers and entrepreneurs have been carried out in the search for solutions to the environmental, economic and social challenges that are part of the 2030 Agenda. It is noteworthy that the planning of the Secretariat's policies and programs has also been guided by the SDOs, taking into consideration their relationship with the National ST & I Strategy and its Plans of Action (under construction), as well as with the Multi-Year Plan (PPA). http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/blog/2015/12/sustainable-development-goals-kick-off-with-start-of-new-year/

  5. 5. FOCUS AREAS AS RELATED TO THE UNDP SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS Technology Extension The development and reapplication of social technologies aimed at technology transfer and the promotion of technological extension activities for productive and social inclusion forms the foundation that allows for having Science and technology as a tool for promoting social development. To this end, we implement a number of policies and programs, such as the support of Vocational Technology Centers, units that are directed primarily towards providing technological extension activities, with emphasis on local economic strengths and potential; the development of Assistive Technologies that foster improvements in the quality of life for people with disabilities; and promoting Food Security and Nutrition aimed at providing adequate and safe food for the population.
  6. 6. Popularization of Science Public communication of science and actions that promote social appropriation of scientific knowledge are relevant for the development of citizenship and help develop society´s scientific and technological skills. In this context, the Secretariat promotes and finances activities for the popularization of science through programs dedicated to non-formal education, such as the creation and improvement of museums and science centers, as well as support to science fairs and science Olympiads. These initiatives are developed in close partnership with universities, research institutions, and governmental organisms and are directed at children, students, and the general population. The main goal is to create and disseminate a scientific and technological culture among the Brazilian people and contribute to improve the quality of science teaching in schools. FOCUS AREAS AS RELATED TO THE UNDP SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
  7. 7. Applied Social Science and Humanities FOCUS AREAS AS RELATED TO THE UNDP SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS The evolution of society has demanded the adoption of new paradigms and innovations in public policies that allow for the holistic understanding of current problems and for the adoption of transdisciplinary actions which have greater impact potential. Applied Social Science and Humanities have a fundamental role in the adequate comprehension of the changes which our society is undergoing, offering an important contribution to the process of transition to new development models that are more inclusive and sustainable. We support multifocal initiatives and pilot projects involving, for example, traditional peoples, sustainable urbanization, human rights and others societal challenges. We prioritize innovative methodologies, solutions and approaches with state of the art technologies to contribute to the scientific and technological development of the country.
  8. 8. Climate FOCUS AREAS AS RELATED TO THE UNDP SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS The understanding of the global climate system and its relation with socioeconomic development, as well as the influence of human activity as a driver of climate change, is pivotal for the adoption of measures to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to climate change. Our work consists of supporting scientific research and providing information on climate variability and the impacts, risks and vulnerabilities associated to climate change. Results from these efforts, together with data on domestic greenhouse gas emissions, are needed for decision-making processes aiming at guaranteeing water, energy and food security, as well as compliance with the commitments taken on by Brazil on international forums on this issue.
  9. 9. Oceans, Antarctica and Geoscience FOCUS AREAS AS RELATED TO THE UNDP SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS To further the research in the oceans, Antarctica and the geosphere, monitoring the climate, the health of oceans and our biodiversity is central to understanding how life is possible on Earth and to develop technologies that generate economic wealth minimizing harm to the planet. Our initiatives include: Direct Brazilian Research in the Oceans and Antarctica, provide liaison with foreign researchers and major global programs. Our work ranges from the selection of research projects to be supported to the management of research marine vessels. We also develop Brazil’s research strategy related to marine biotechnology, fisheries and aquaculture, abysses and energy generation from the oceans, among others. All these initiatives have a single goal: to know how to better manage these resources.
  10. 10. Bioeconomy FOCUS AREAS AS RELATED TO THE UNDP SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS Bioeconomy emerges as a result of a revolution derived from innovations based on the biological sciences. It is directly linked to invention, development and use of biological products and processes, as well as to sustainable services, oriented to the solution of problems in various areas, especially those related to ensuring water, energy and food security. The worldwide growth potential of Bioeconomy is due to population increase and its aging and to the need to enhance the offer of food supply, health, energy, drinking water, among others. With that in mind, we contribute to the formulation of public policies and to the definition of strategies regarding scientific and technological development of Bioeconomy, aiming at the establishment of an agenda committed to expanding research and innovation, with the participation of government, industrial and academic units and representatives from the civil society.
  11. 11. Biomes FOCUS AREAS AS RELATED TO THE UNDP SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS Brazil is the country with the largest biodiversity on earth. To know all species existing in its territory it is essential to conserve and to promote the sustainable use of its biodiversity. Therefore, the work on Biomes contributes to make better public policies and strategies, aiming at knowing and monitoring this biodiversity. It also seeks to better characterize relevant elements of ecosystems, either in physical or in biotic environment, as well as to better understand how time, space and social dynamics interact for an adequate sustainable use of natural resources within Brazilian biomes. Moreover, the work on biomes also supports the creation of models which aim at setting forth adequate relations among environmental factors and biodiversity, without disregarding changes in the fauna and flora.
  12. 12. Health and Biotechnology FOCUS AREAS AS RELATED TO THE UNDP SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS One of the major drivers of the national economy is the growing demand for food and products for health. Under this focus area, the Secretariat contributes with the development of policies and to the definition of strategies to promote scientific and techno- logical development in Health, Biotechnology and Agriculture. In Health, one of the greatest challenges is the development of tech- nologies to effectively prevent and control emergent and re-emer- gent diseases and the development of new medicines, vaccines and other health products that would increase national autonomy in this sector. To promote national Agriculture, it is essential to develop new technologies that allow increased sustainable production with low environmental impact. In Biotechnology, we would highlight the importance of knowledge production and the incremental de- velopment of products, processes and services based on the sus- tainable application of the national biodiversity and on the integra- tion of new biotechnologies in specific applications for Health, Agri- culture, the environment and Industry.
