SASAC stands for the Southern African Systems Analysis Centre. It is a multi-year initiative developed by South Africa’s National Research Foundation (NRF) and the Department of Science & Technology (DST) as part of its membership of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).
