Professor Michael Barber and Dr TJ Higgins will represent the Academy on Sustainable Development Goals committees

Two Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science have been invited to represent the Academy on separate InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) project committees.

Professor Michael Barber FAA FTSE will serve on the committee overseeing the project ‘Improving scientific input to global policy making: strategies for attaining the Sustainable Development Goals’. This project, co-chaired by Dr Eva Alisic from Monash University, will be framed around the global science community’s contribution to the delivery of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Academy Vice President, Dr TJ Higgins AO FAA FTSE, will serve on the committee overseeing the project ‘Harnessing science, engineering, and medicine to address Africa’s challenges’. This project has been established to analyse Africa’s efforts to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals.

Both projects will last for three years and are funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
