Dec 24, 2018

Jose Siri and David Tan


Key messages


Experiences with a systems approach to urban health and wellbeing in the Asia-Pacific region underline the need to:


1.Understand and underscore the centrality of health in development by formalizing links between health and other sectors.


2.Move beyond simple indicators to a recognition of the consequences of complexity, and particularly of the dynamics of causal feedback loops.


3.Identify important cross-sectoral synergies and tradeoffs.


4.Promote inter- and trans-disciplinarity in science through new funding and evaluation criteria.


5.Create mechanisms and structures to improve the science/policy interface.
