A global audience of more than 2,600 watched as Norway’s Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide opened the 2021 SDG Conference Bergen discussing issues of climate change, stable institutions and inequality as the conference went virtual – and viral.
The University of Bergen is involved in four new projects to receive funding from the Worldwide Universities Network’s Research Development Fund, which focusses on global challenges towards the 2030 Agenda.
Every year, several countries present their Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) to show their progress in implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. But how can science play an integral part in these proceedings?
In contrast to WHO´s and other experts´ advice, the worst-off countries should be prioritised when it comes to COVID-19 vaccine allocation, according to Professor Ole Frithjof Norheim at the University of Bergen.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the research programme GRIP launched a series of interviews on global inequality in March 2020. With more than 20 interviews out, GRIP is now looking at how to bring the debate on inequality into the mainstream.
