The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), launched in 2015, set goals to achieve a sustainable and fair future for people around the world by the year 2030. Since 2016, the State of São Paulo government has been working to institutionalize the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. Scientific research on these themes makes an important contribution to achieving the goals. As a state sponsoring agency, the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) is in line with official initiatives in progress and, over time, has offered financial support for scientific, technological and innovation research in this context.
