Center for Systems Solutions

The Center for Systems Solutions is an organization dedicated to studying problems in the world, how these problems relate to one another, and ways that they can be solved. Problems are examined within a systems framework, where one goal is to understand how issues such as infectious diseases, water shortages, and climate change dynamically interact with one another. For example, what underlying factors universally contribute to all of these problems? Are there particular factors (leverage points) that if identified and intervened upon would systemically alter all of these issues in positive ways? Finding such leverage points is critical because there are limited resources available to solve global problems, so the resources that are available need to be utilized most efficiently. By compartmentalizing problems, fighting over where resources should be directed, and failing to think about problems and solutions systemically, significant opportunities to overcome many world challenges are missed.
