Austria’s IIASA Council member for Austria, Prof. Gerhard Glatzel, and ESM Deputy Director, Florian Kraxner, attended the ninth Science and Technology Week (ASTW) of ASEAN (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations) in August 2014, Bogor, Indonesia.

IIASA researchers provided keynote speeches in a high-level session on "Applied Systems Analysis to Support Policy Measures for Complex Problems in the Context of ASEAN,” opened by H.E. Minister Gusti Muhammad Hatta.

Other speakers were: Director General for ASEAN Cooperation, H.E. I Gusti Agung Wesaka Puja (Ministry of Foreign Affairs), and IIASA Council Member for Indonesia and Head of Indonesia National Committee for Applied Systems Analysis, Prof. Kuntoro Mangkusubroto.

The ASTW, to which IIASA has been providing information based on its expertise in systems analysis, was followed by a series of visits by IIASA scientists to ministries and the Indonesian REDD+ Agency. Further training activities and the joint development of IIASA’s Tropical Futures Initiative beyond the forest issue (i.e., energy, food security, water nexus) were discussed and outlined.
