About Foresight Week

Over the course of 3 days and 5 action-packed virtual sessions, we will explore a Strategic Foresight package put together by SPP, that COs can employ in 2022 for anticipatory planning. We have timed our event in January so that COs can use insights for programme planning and begin embedding foresight processes.  

? Our 3D approach is designed for all UNDP RBAP staff, regardless of previous experience with foresight management, and is also open to regions outside RBAP.

Dear Colleagues,
Please find the slide deck for this session attached. Some highlights and headlines from this session include:

?We heard about 'Ambidextrous decision making'. In other words, being both forward planning, and appropriate to present needs when making policy decisions.
?We discussed establishing the fine balance between the digital and the human in foresight driven capacity building.
?We debated "pre-historic decision making, medieval institutions and god like technology" (watch the recording above for more!).

Finally, we heard what was next for Strategic Foresight in the RBAP region and beyond, and the importance of being evidence driven in our futures-based thinking.
