Development, Science and Complexity: What new scientific thinking means for policy and practice
On 10 February UKCDS hosted a workshop exploring how complexity science might be incorporated into international development. Speakers included Sir John Beddington, Ben Ramalingam and Philip Ball.
UKCDS has long been interested in the application of complexity science to development, having previously worked on the water, land, energy and health nexus and having worked with Ben to host a complexity workshop in 2011. UKCDS also has a Post-2015 workstream, examining the potential contributions of science to the Sustainable Development Goals.
