STI may be a major enabler for national socio-economic change (SET). To function as such a set of STI Policy, Advice and Management Systems must be in place to optimise progress towards Total National Capacity (TNC) in STI. The overarching objectives of national SET is for a Harmonious, Prosperous, Progressive and Sustainable (HPPS) nation, achievable through deploying the four Critical Technologies for Basic Needs, Quality of Life/Environmental Sustainability, Economic Development/Industrial
... opment/Industrial Competitiveness and Good Governance. Identifying the HPPS issues, securing and deploying the right technological solutions are subject to National Priorities determined through TNC in STI. The SDG's overall objective is a Global Socio-Economic Transformation for a Global HPPS, moreover requiring the application of the application of the four Critical Technologies. The HPPS and the four Critical Technologies are the common ground where Global Goals meet National Priorities; and where Goal 17 -Partnership for the Goals, global cooperation and collaboration can actually happen. Consideration to HPPS targets of national SET is a way developing countries can meaningfully contribute to the delivery of the SDG. Total National Capacity in STI could be a prerequisite to accomplishing national SET and contributing to global SET of the SDG. Pandemics readiness and capacity to respond must be a component of TNC in STI. A National STI Action Council is proposed as necessary for TNC in STI.
