A Review of Strategic Foresight in International Development

A Review of Strategic Foresight in International Development

The purpose of this review is to provide an overview of the published and grey literatures relating to the use of foresight-type approaches and techniques in policy-related work in international development. The review is guided by questions around who has used foresight approaches, the kinds of issues foresight approaches have been used to address, which techniques have been most commonly used, what evidence there is that the results of foresight initiatives have been used and/or have been useful, and the level of resources devoted to foresight exercises.
