Through its research on the world’s most complex challenges, IIASA produces unique scientific insights and possible solutions to many of the critical challenges we face: What are the best ways to tackle the climate crisis? How can we protect biodiversity? What are the ways forward towards sustainable, resilient, just, and equitable societies?  

The IIASA public webinar series provides a virtual platform to get to know the experts at IIASA and to share research, opportunities, knowledge, and experiences, and foster new connections.
