The International Input-Output Association (IIOA) is a non-profit, scientific organisation founded in 1988. The IIOA today is a thriving, growing and influential organisation with over 630 members spanning 59 countries.

The objective of the IIOA is the advancement of knowledge in the field of Input-Output data compilation and analysis, including improvements in basic data, theoretical insights and modelling, and applications - traditional and novel - of Input-Output techniques. The IIOA delivers its core objectives by supporting young scholars, widening the awareness of the organisation, providing exchange of experience through our global annual IIOA Conference.

The global IIOA community brings together both producers (e.g. national statistical offices) of the statistics needed and the wide range of users, analysts and policy makers to advance knowledge on energy, environment, international trade, financial flows, price and general equilibrium analysis, ecological sustainability and well-being.

We welcome you to browse through the IIOA webpages, contact one of our Council Members, and to attend our annual conferences to learn more of the IIOA and its activities.

Forthcoming webinar

Presenter: Anne Owen
Affiliation: Associate Professor at the Sustainability Research Institute, University of Leeds, UK
Title of presentation: Bridging the gap between research and policy: lessons learned and future recommendations

Date and time: Wed, 20-Dec-2023 15:00(CET)
Start in 13 days, 17 hours, 24 minutes

Dr Anne Owen is an Associate Professor at the Sustainability Research Institute, University of Leeds, UK. Anne’s research focusses on the environmental impacts associated with household consumption, how different types of households contribute to climate change and what actions households can take to reduce their impact. For the past twelve years Anne has calculated the UK’s consumption-based emissions account for UK Government and this is now an Official Statistic reported annually. Anne’s work has been published widely with recent highlights including assessing carbon footprints from large scale financial transaction data and being quoted widely in a Guardian article on high impact lifestyles.

Dr Anne Owen reflects on a decade providing outputs from consumption-based accounting to National and Local Government, businesses and the third sector. She identifies the mismatch between what MRIO databases can calculate and what is required by policymakers as evidence for Net Zero targets and shares experiences of recent work advising how MRIO carbon multipliers can be (mis)used in calculating Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions for businesses.
