Established in July 2021, the Integrated Sustainability Centre (ISC) is an interdisciplinary unit that fully integrates sustainability issues across IGES research and programming. ISC works with key stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region to accelerate the progress of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and contribute to the formulation of an ambitious post-2030 agenda by strengthening the science-policy-society interface.
The unit’s research and activities will apply the following approaches:
1) Science-based quantitative tools and methods, e.g. analyses on SDG interlinkages and socioeconomic scenarios
2) Sustainability governance models and strategies, e.g. SDG governance and business, co-benefits and co-innovation, inclusive transition and environmental justice
3) Cutting-edge policy integration frameworks and solutions, e.g. the Circulating and Ecological Sphere (CES), synergies between climate, SDGs, and biodiversity
Such tools and approaches will be used to develop practical case studies and support key policymaking processes, solidifying IGES’ position as a change agent for sustainability in the Asia-Pacific and beyond.
