Hosted by the World Bank, the Society for Decision Making Under Deep Uncertainty held its annual meeting on November 16-17, 2016. The two-day workshop provided training on decision making methodology, and focused on issues of climate, water, energy, and more. Several RAND experts, including Pardee Center director Robert Lempert, attended the meeting.
The RAND Frederick S. Pardee Center for Longer Range Global Policy and the Future Human Condition was established in 2001 through a generous $5 million pledge from RAND alumnus Frederick S. Pardee. The RAND Pardee Center aims to enhance the overall future quality and condition of human life by aggressively disseminating and applying new methods for long-term policy analysis in a wide variety of policy areas where they are needed most.
The Pardee Center organizes its activities around two main themes: (1) advancing the state-of the-art in conducting long-term policy analysis so organizations can implement better long-range policy; and (2) developing and disseminating approaches that will help make proper stewardship for the future be more commonly practiced.
