➡️ Back to the IPPN group!

Join us for the next IPPN Knowledge Café, a webinar series focused on building the IPPN members’ capacity to better understand a systems perspective on policy integration and acceleration; and integrated policy solutions, including curation of tools and resources that support the design and implementation of cross-cutting policy solutions. 

About this webinar

As part of consultations in preparation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2023-2027, the UN Country Team in Kyrgyzstan launched the Kyrgyzstan Scenarios Exercise (KSE), aiming to map key development trends in the country and develop a shared vision on the future of the UN system in Kyrgyzstan.

The scenarios planning exercise occurred in the dramatically overlapping contexts of important political changes, constitutional transition, border conflict, regional volatility, and in the midst of a global pandemic which is severely testing national political, economic and social institutions. Using a foresight methodology, it brought together the UN Country Team, national stakeholders and experts to co-develop a range of policy scenarios for alternative futures based on critical uncertainties.

This Knowledge Café will share lessons from the UN Country Team in Kyrgyzstan on the opportunities and practical challenges in applying foresight to support strategic prioritization in Sustainable Development Cooperation Frameworks.


Welcome and scene-settings remarks, followed by a brief presentation from:

This will be followed by a Q&A and exchanges with the audience!
