24 March 2021 - 25 March 2021
High-level delegations from the OECD and IIASA, led by Ángel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General, and Albert van Jaarsveld, IIASA Director General and CEO, will gather virtually on 24-25 March 2021 for the Fourth OECD-IIASA Task Force meeting. They will review progress achieved since the Third Task Force meeting hosted by the OECD in Paris on 26-27 February 2020 and will outline further steps on how to move this important collaboration forward. Government representatives of OECD member countries and the European Commission will attend the event and provide their feedback on priority activities for the OECD-IIASA strategic partnership.
The meeting will focus on systems-based strategies for recovery and longer-term sustainability, policy integration to manage connected systemic challenges, institutional frameworks for an integrated approach to sustainability, and other issues.
A number of presentations by OECD and IIASA representatives and invited participants are expected, including presentations by van Jaarsveld on “Science, innovation, and education for a just transition to a sustainable world economy” and by Leena Srivastava, IIASA Deputy Director General for Science, on “Transformations within reach: pathways to a sustainable and resilient world” in which she will outline the results and recommendations generated by IIASA and the International Science Council (ISC) Consultative Science Platform.
Other presentations include:
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation that works to build better policies for better lives. Its goal is to shape policies that foster prosperity, equality, opportunity and well-being for all. It draws on 60 years of experience and insights to better prepare the world of tomorrow. Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, OECD works on establishing evidence-based international standards and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, it provides a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.
