Booksprint 2019: Modelling for Sustainable Development: New Decisions for a New Age

Share This

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) hosted its first-ever “Booksprint” from June 3-7, 2019, in Montreux, Switzerland.

The event brought together economic modellers, policy analysts, and other world-class experts on sustainability for five days with the following goal: to create a book that captures the range of approaches, considerations, and lessons from using models in developing sustainable development-oriented policies and projects. The project was facilitated by the Book Sprints company, which has run similar projects for international organizations, think tanks, and many others.

The book, Modelling for Sustainable Development: New Decisions for a New Age is now available for download at the IISD website. The book’s co-authors include:

We hope this book will prove useful to decision makers, economists, policy analysts, and researchers in their work.  We also hope that it will help stimulate a new wave of collaborative, innovative decision-making for sustainable development. 

A webinar about the book was held on October 21, 2019. The video recording is available for viewing below:
