Science, Technology and Innovation for SDGs
In the period 2017-2020 were measures in place to encourage that STI is geared to help achieve SDGs?
yes
If yes, please describe
- l´intégration des ODD dans le plan quinquennal de développement et les stratégies nationales. - la mise en place d´un cadre global de soutien à l´innovation, des programmes spécifiques visant à exploiter la science à des fins économiques ont été lancés et une nouvelle culture de l´esprit d´entreprise et de l´innovation est progressivement apparue dans la société. Les performances du système STI tunisien sont favorables pour relever les défis de la réalisation des ODD. - le lancement du plan stratégique 2017-2022, après une approche participative, définissant une vision partagée de faire de la Tunisie un pôle régional d´excellence en recherche et innovation, afin de favoriser le développement et d´améliorer la qualité de vie des citoyens, notamment en contribuant à cinq principaux objectifs: 1) d´excellentes universités, 2) des entreprises innovantes et pionnières, 3) des services publics modernes, 4) des régions innovantes et prospères, et 5) une société libre, démocratique et sûre. L´exercice participatif conduit à 6 priorités nationales: 1. Société démocratique émergente: éducation, culture et jeunesse 2. Gouvernance et décentralisation 3. Eau, énergie et sécurité alimentaire 4. Économie circulaire 5. Soins de santé de qualité 6. Transition numérique et industrielle Des programmes nationaux de recherche ont été mis en place pour financer des projets de R&I dans le cadre de ces axes prioritaires qui sont alignés sur les ODD. De plus, le MESRS a adhéré à des partenariats de recherche internationaux qui portent sur l’eau et la sécurité alimentaire (PRIMA), la biodiversité (Biodeversa), la pollution et l’environnement (Aquatic polluant)et l’économie bleue (Blue Med).
Are there any obstacles to achieving SDGs observed in your country that relate to the STI system?
yes
If yes, please describe
Malgré l’ampleur des activités de recherche et la qualité de ses ressources humaines, le système STI ne contribue pas encore de manière significative à la réalisation des ODD. Ceci est du à: - la faible implication de toutes les parties prenantes et surtout la participation privée à la R&D. - l´absence d´un système de coordination interministérielle. - problèmes de financement et de gouvernance du STI.
