About Integrated Assessment

TIAS defines Integrated assessment (IA) as the scientific “meta-discipline” that integrates knowledge about a problem domain and makes it available for societal learning and decision-making processes. Scientific and stakeholder knowledge is drawn from many disciplines and a wide range of methods are applied.

IA plays an important role in environmental management by providing integrated knowledge management tools and processes for addressing complex environmental problems, and for promoting transformations towards sustainable development.


Send us your IA announcements: events, publications, etc. to profile on our website and/or in our quarterly newsletter. For more information on joining the global community of practitioners and scientists that use Integrated Assessment visit our membership page.

6th Global Environment Outlook released in 2019

UN Environment’s sixth Global Environment Outlook (2019) calls on decision makers to take immediate action to address pressing environmental issues to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals as well as other Internationally Agreed Environment Goals, such as the Paris Agreement. GEO-6 builds on the findings of previous GEO reports, including the six regional assessments (2016), and outlines the current state of the environment, illustrates possible future environmental trends and analyses the effectiveness of policies. This report shows how governments can put the world on the path to a truly sustainable future. It emphasizes that urgent and inclusive action is needed by decision makers at all levels to achieve a healthy planet with healthy people.
