Unravelling Complexity

Our mission is to create a collaborative space where policymakers, stakeholders and researchers work together to develop insights into complex policy questions.

We support policymakers

To tackle present and future policy challenges, we must comprehend how to navigate a complex world. This includes detecting early warning signals, enhancing resilience, and intervening in complex adaptive systems in a responsible and effective manner. At POLDER we equip policymakers with insights to navigate increasingly complex landscapes and make better-informed decisions, reducing uncertainty and increasing the impact of policy interventions.
