Futurism & Foresighting

What is Development Futures Thinking? It is essentially the powers of foresight and looking towards the horizon. During 2020 and 2021, the RDI Network worked with two futurists to create a higher level of conversation and broader level understanding of development effectiveness. Together with RDI Network members, workshops and webinars were convened to be a catalyst for change in development thinking, discourse, and ideology.
Here RDI Network members can access case studies, tools and templates for:

  • Scenario planning strategies to discuss, debate and plan for changing futures of development.
  • Different development futures based upon the ideas from a diverse range of workshop participants
  • Building and sharing skills for trend identification and visioning of potential futures
