Abstract

In the field of global modeling, IIASA has assumed a monitoring role. Whenever a major global model reached a state of completion, IIASA convened an international conference of scholars working in this field to discuss the assumptions, methodology, and findings of the model prior to its final publication.

The first two IIASA global modeling conferences dealt with "Mankind at the Turning Point" (April/May 1974) and the "Bariloche Model" (October 1974), respectively. The subject of this global modeling conference is "MOIRA" that is concerned with problems in the field of food and agriculture. The model was developed by a group of scholars from the Netherlands.

This topic is of particular interest to developing nations, and IIASA is greatly indebted to the United Nations Environment Programme for its support of this conference. As a result, IIASA was able to field the conference on a much broader scale and to include as participants a large number of experts from developing nations. Their contributions proved to be of great importance, allowing an examination and discussion of the methodological framework of the models directly from a viewpoint of the needs of these nations.
