It means...

Integrated assessment is an interdisciplinary approach to assessment based on combining, interpreting and communicating knowledge from diverse scientific disciplines to policy in such a way that an entire cause–effect chain of a problem can be evaluated from a synoptic perspective. By engaging with policymakers, industry and civil society, we aim to open up pathways to inclusive and sustainable energy futures.

Fostering the transition towards sustainable energy systems is central to addressing climate change and other pressing societal issues.
