Why does good science not always inform policy? The importance of researchers and decision-makers working across sectors to develop scientifically sound policy is not a new concept. Yet scientific and policy communities are still organised according to sectoral and disciplinary structures, and true dialogue is rare.
UNU-FLORES will convene an “International Dialogue on Working at the Science-Policy Interface” to discuss how we can increase policy-relevant academic inputs to the decision- and policy-making process. Focusing on the concept of interaction and exchange, which is at the heart of any productive dialogue, an emphasis will be placed on providing interactive spaces to encourage and foster discussion.
