Technological and scientific advances most needed to make a difference in the lives of poor people around the world are mapped out in a new study titled “50 Breakthroughs: Critical Scientific and Technological Advances Needed for Sustainable Global Development,” from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Institute for Globally Transformative Technologies (LIGTT) (https://ligtt.org/50-breakthroughs).

The authors of the study consulted with over 1000 experts to identify advances that could transform global outcomes, which are categorized into 9 areas: global health, food security and agricultural development, education, human rights, gender equity, water, access to electricity, digital inclusion, and resilience against climate change and environmental damage.
