The Integrated Assessment Society (TIAS) promotes "the community of inter-disciplinary and disciplinary scientists, analysts and practitioners who develop and use integrated assessment. The goals of the society are to nurture this community, to promote the development of IA [Integrated Assessment] and to encourage its wise application."
"Integrated assessment (IA) can be defined as the scientific "meta-discipline" that integrates knowledge about a problem domain and makes it available for societal learning and decision making processes. Public policy issues involving long-range and long-term environmental management are where the roots of integrated assessment can be found. However, today, IA is used to frame, study and solve issues at other scales. IA has been developed for acid rain, climate change, land degradation, water and air quality management, forest and fisheries management and public health. The field of Integrated Assessment engages stakeholders and scientists, often drawing these from many disciplines." IA was founded in 2003.
Journal: N/A. (An online journal Integrated Assessment - Bridging Science and Policy was published until 2010.)
