IAP Communiqué on Ukraine

Read the new IAP Communiqué

On 3 March, the leadership of the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) released a communiqué on the military offensive of the Russian Federation into Ukraine.

The document stresses that “[i]f humanity is to attain the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN’s 2030 Agenda and truly ‘leave no one behind’, science and technology must be mobilized around the globe.”

“Already the COVID-19 pandemic has impeded countries in their quest to achieve the SDGs. Wars of any kind and in any location further disrupt the progress that was being made toward the SDGs on many fronts. There can never be any reason for choosing troops and weapons ahead of rational dialogue to overcome any conflict or challenge.”
