G-Science Academies Statements 2020 on Basic Research, Digital Health, and Declines in Global Insect Populations

Les drapeaux du G7

On 28 May 2020, Science academies from the G-7 countries and seven additional academies issued three joint statements to their respective governments, to advise the G-7 process and to inform ongoing policymaking and public discussion.
In the statements, the academies call for strategies to restore and sustain public funding of basic research, to realize the benefits offered by digital health tools, and to respond to global declines in insect diversity and abundance. The three new statements follow a statement made in April that called for international cooperation in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
