IIASA works with the policy community and stakeholder representatives throughout the research process: defining the research agenda and specific research questions; refining models as results come in and issues evolve; and communicating findings in clear and useful formats.
Through these activities, IIASA establishes a feedback mechanism to ensure that the key points of the analyses have been accurately understood by decision makers so that they can be appropriately weighed in the relevant policy processes.
Governance is a critical component of a society’s capacity to respond effectively to major challenges. Governance mechanisms, for example, institutional arrangements for decision making and policy implementation and regulations and economic incentives, are considered as integral parts of systems analysis at IIASA.
Below are some examples of the impact of IIASA's research on policy:
