Commission on Science and Technology for Development
The Commission on Science and Technology for Development Committee, established in the 1992, is responsible for keeping the UN and its policies up to date with the ever-changing scientific and technological advancements of today. This committee often addresses ways that technology can be implemented to better monitor and aid its member countries, especially those considered to still be developing. Through discussions held within the CSTD, the UN has received guidance through the internet age and beyond, and they will continue to be the leading forum of technological discussion in policy making.
