Background Guide Coming Soon.

The Commission on Science and Technology for development (CSTD) is a subsidiary body of ECOSOC that is responsible for providing ECOSOC with advice on relevant science and technology issues.

Currently, the CSTD has been focusing on clean energy and green industrial development in order to promote sustainable development (as laid out by the 2030 agenda).

The specific missions of the commission are to examine prominent questions regarding science and technology, to implement science and technology into future policy-making (specifically in developing countries), and to develop recommendations to the UN on science and technology matters.
