The rationale and objectives of the OECD-IIASA Strategic Partnership are outlined. The Partnership underpins an effort to combine the OECD’s strengths in policy analysis and dialogue with the scientific expertise of IIASA,to strengthen the evidence base of policy and help provide better strategies and advice. The systems approach can promote cross-sectoral,multidisciplinary collaboration in the process of policy formulation by taking proper account of the crucial linkages between issues generally treated separately within different specialisations and scientific and institutional “silos”. The approach provides a methodology to achieve a better understanding of the nonlinear behaviour of complex systems and improve the assessment of the consequences of policy interventions. A joint TaskForce is organised around systems-based strategies to address global issues; improved analytical methods; governance and institutional innovation; systems leadership; extending existing joint activities; initiating new topics for collaboration; and extension and outreach.
