On the 6-7th November 2018 in Tokyo, Japan, the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA) hosted its 3rd biennial conference on International Science Advice to Government.
INGSA is a global forum for policy-makers, practitioners, academies, and academics to share experience, build capacity, and develop theoretical and practical approaches to the use of scientific evidence in informing policy at all levels of government.
INGSA2018 brought together policy professionals, leading practitioners, scholars, and industry representatives interested in the dynamics of the science-policy interface from over 50 countries. The conference explored the principles, practices, and dynamics of working at the science-policy interface, particularly in relation to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
SAPEA’s work on food from the oceans was presented by working group members to an expert audience.
