strategy

Interdisciplinary planning

Synonyms:
Designing interdisciplinary programmes
Developing intersectoral management techniques
Implementation:
This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities. Agenda 21 recommends such improvements with respect to integrating environment and development in decision-making.

UNESCO has emphasized the importance of interdisciplinary planning and programme design.

Counter Claim:
Increased specialization and the still incomplete understanding of the dynamic interactions between science and technology, education, culture and communication, have added to the difficulty of developing a system of incentives which encourages interdisciplinary programme design and intersectoral management of a more strategic, long-term nature.
