Supporting Science-Based Decision Making

Hybrid mode - Registration required for participation on Zoom or on site (Auditorium 6214, André-Aisenstadt Pavilion, 6th floor 2920, chemin de la Tour,campus de l'Université de Montréal)

This tool kit is a collection of two-page briefs highlighting the role of mathematics in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030. Written by mathematicians and scientists from around the world, these briefs present fascinating research on how mathematics is addressing the world's most pressing challenges. The collection is intended for policymakers and others who seek to learn about these issues. It also presents new avenues for scientific research.

The Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) was the manager for this project carried out by a consortium of organizations:
- African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS)
- African Mathematical Union (AMU)
- Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM)
- UNESCO Cat II centre CIMPA (Centre international de mathématiques pures et appliquées)
- European Mathematical Society(EMS)
- Institut des Sciences mathématiques et de leurs interactions (INSMI) au CNRS
- Institut de valorisation des données (IVADO), Canada
- International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI)
