The Editors Iain Stewart and Matthias Jonas work for the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), an international scientific institute that conducts research into the critical issues of global environmental, economic, technological, and social change that we face in the twenty-first century. Their findings provide valuable options to policy makers to shape the future of our changing world. IIASA is independent and funded by scientific institutions in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe.
