The UNU-IAS Strategic Plan, 2016–2019 guides the further development of the institute’s research, policy development, and capacity building activities. The current plan was originally adopted by the UNU-IAS Board in October 2015, and subsequently revised and extended in October 2018.
The strategic plan emphasizes sustainability science, which will continue to serve as the overarching framework for our work. It also focuses on combining academic excellence and policy-relevant research. The approach of UNU-IAS will be to generate interdisciplinary knowledge to address topics that are high on the international agenda, producing science-based inputs to inform policymaking.
