Session IV:
Enhancing Analytical Capabilities to Inform Policy (John Weyant)

8:40 am

This panel will take stock of the current suite of modeling/analytical approaches for responding to policymaking informational needs. Panelists will explore how existing models and analytic approaches could be enhanced, specific areas that might deserve more focus (e.g., uncertainty, technology policy, risk, international analyses, interactions with other policy goals), new approaches worthy of further development, and opportunities for government agencies and other institutions to enhance their policy-analytic capabilities.
