"Modelling for Sustainable Development: New decisions for a new age" is a book that explores different modelling approaches that could serve policy makers and project developers as they look to incorporate sustainable development considerations into their work. The publication was the result of IISD's first-ever Booksprint, which brought together a team of experts for five days to analyze the lessons learned from different modelling approaches used in developing projects and policies that are supportive of sustainable development objectives.
