Investment in research and development in the science sector has been boosted by private contributions as public funding has declined.

That's according to the latest Science Report from the UN cultural and scientific organization, UNESCO.

The report, which suggests that science will be essential to reach many of the newly agreed Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs, was released on World Science Day for Peace and Development, marked annually on 10 November.

Isabelle Dupuis asked Susan Schneegans, Editor in Chief of the 2015 UNESCO Science Report, for more details.
