There is a clear need for new ideas and approaches to provide a sound basis for better-informed decisions to manage intensifying economic, environmental and social challenges. As these challenges are systemic, interconnected and dynamic, systems thinking, coupled with improved anticipation and strengthened resilience, provides a coherent methodology and the necessary tools to develop the new approaches which are so urgently required to formulate and implement more coherent and effective policies. The Strategic Partnership established by the OECD and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) has defined priorities including the formulation of systems-based strategies to address global issues, disseminating systems thinking through education and training, and extending the systems approach across the OECD.
