The Commission on Science and Technology for Development is a subsidiary body of the Economic and Social Council. With its headquarters located in Geneva, Switzerland, The Commission for Science and Technology for Development, or CSTD, and its 43 members composed of national governments, annually come to discuss issues that affect science and technology developing in the modern era. The CSTD was designed to provide the United Nations with advice on agreeing on policies and actions using its annual intergovernmental forum for discussion, creating a space to safely review issues with modern science and technology such as the ethicality, practicality, and the jurisdiction of the committee on each matter in question. The CSTD is the perfect committee for experienced delegates passionate about engaging in a fruitful debate on topics surrounding the issues in modern-day science and technology for development.
