Coupled human-environment systems are characterized by uncertainty, limited predictability, bounded rationality, indeterminate causality and evolutionary change. To determine the impact of specific policy intervention, an integrated analysis approach is needed that provides a holistic view of complex interactions within such systems. In this seminar, Kaveh Madani, the head of the Nexus Research Programme at the United Nations University, highlights some of the major challenges of modelling and managing complex human-environment systems to argue why we often fail to develop comprehensive technological and policy solutions that can solve one problem without creating new ones.
Speaker: Kaveh Madani, United Nations University, Dresden, Germany
