Support Science for Global Insight
Today's world is undergoing a major transformation, characterized by increased globalization, fundamental shifts in economic and political power, growing global environmental problems, and potentially explosive social conflicts. Science and technology are needed to help policymakers develop sustainable pathways through this transformation.
In this global context, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) conducts independent, international, and interdisciplinary systems analysis to identify and assess possible solutions to complex global problems and their interactions.
If you believe that the global threats to our future require long-lasting solutions that are based on international, truly independent, scientific investigation, then we invite you to support IIASA today.
"IIASA has long been the path-breaker in integrated systems analysis ... It's always been about how to feed the planet or where are the energy resources going to come from by mapping a global-scale set of challenges and a global-scale set of projections and forcing a look - which almost no normal scientific enterprise does - at the interface between the physical environment and the human systems."
