United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development

Committee Description

The United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) is responsible for providing the United Nations with specialized, high-level advice on policy issues. Experts nominated by their countries come together at the annual meeting of the CTSD to guide the future work of the UN, develop common policies, and agree on actions to further the Sustainable Development Goals by harnessing the power of science and technology.

In a world where massive advances are being made in science and technology nearly every day, the work of the Commission is vital. Not only will members examine the implications of these advancements, but they will work to ensure that they are strategically deployed to better the lives of all 8 billion people who call this planet home – particularly those who need it the most.

The CSTD is an intermediate committee. Delegates with some experience in MUN are preferred, although anybody with ability and interest may be chosen for this committee.
