PLENARY SESSIONS

Taking the conversation on integrated technological solutions to a higher level

Summary report


While The G-STIC 2018 thematic sessions provided strategic information and insights into the requirements to replicate and upscale the deployment of integrated technological solutions throughout different regions of the world and under different socio-economic conditions, the G-STIC 2018 plenary sessions took these conversations to a higher level of aggregation and policy actions. The plenary sessions' goal was to distill cross-thematic/sectoral common messages and identify systemic and disruptive changes that need to occur to transition to more sustainable and equitable societies and economies.
