International Workshop on State of Foresight in the CGIAR

The objectives of this workshop are to: 1) Take stock and synthesize the recent foresight activities and findings in CGIAR research; 2) Discuss the outcomes (synthesis) of the independent foresight assessment led by ISPC in 2017 on the futures of global agri-food systems, and how they relate to the state of foresight in CGIAR; 3) Agree on major drivers and trends that must be considered in developing scenarios for CGIAR foresight work at system level – taking into account current CGIAR foresight work and the ISPC independent foresight exercise; and 4) Develop an initial plan for CGIAR system-wide work on foresight.
