Foresight for policy & decision-makers


The following PLACARD report was prepared within Task 4.3 (Promote Foresight), with the aim to promoting the cooperative use of foresight methods by CCA and DRR communities. Foresight is a systematic, participatory, future-intelligence-gathering and medium-to-longterm vision-building process aimed at enabling present-day decisions and mobilising joint actions (European Foresight Platform (EFP). In the project proposal, PLACARD identified joint foresight methodologies and the process of developing foresight as opportunities to help in identifying and creating synergies as well as increasing coherence in and between CCA and DRR activities.

This report explores the potential role of foresight in integrating DRR and CCA through an analysis of 20 of the most common foresight methods. It elaborates on the foresight methodologies and how they may be effectively applied to better integrate CCA and DRR in research, policy and practice. The report also supports European CCA and DRR research programming by distilling key research needs and gaps, and explores potential connections with ongoing or planned research on foresight.
