The Millennium Institute (MI) is a non-governmental organization with a vision of a world in which decision makers apply extensive knowledge and a systemic perspective to bring about a sustainable, equitable, and peaceful global society. Millennium Institute strives to realize its vision by enabling decision makers to use system dynamics thinking and tools to analyze and understand the interconnectedness between economic, social, environmental factors, and issues of peace and security.

In its 30 years of experience, MI has assisted more than 40 nations and regional groups to outline policies to achieve countrywide sustainable development goals. MI’s demonstrated understanding of the complexity of and interrelationships among policies in each sector has helped to create greater and more open dialog among stakeholders in the formulation of policies.  Using dynamic and interactive modeling tools, the impacts of sector and stakeholder concerns are analyzed in the context of each other, leading to stronger policy formulations meant to sustainable development. To empower countries to take full ownership of their development agenda, MI transfers the knowledge and skills to use our modeling tools.

Member Projects

Integrated Sustainable Development Goals Model (iSDG)

The iSDG Model is a comprehensive simulation tool that generates country-specific development scenarios to show the implications of policy on a country’s progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The model gives users the unique ability to conduct on-the-spot simulations, perform complex policy analyses and visually demonstrate projected results through graphs and data charts. The model’s interface allows users to chart potential progress toward each of the SDGs, evaluate anticipated benefits of proposed policies and strategies, and foresee long-term impacts up to the year 2050.
