Sovereign (Public) Project | 52299-001 Status: Active

The proposed KSTA will pilot the use of foresight and futures strategic thinking to enhance development planning in selected DMCs and inform ADB's country partnership strategies with these countries. This enables the creation of more robust policy solutions, which integrate the perspectives of different stakeholders. Techniques are used to helps transform the understanding of the future by reframing the problem or issue through deeper causative levels, and by constructing the issues through diverse worldviews and stakeholders. Scenario planning is used to move from the _one future_ or planning for _the_ future to the acceptance of other possible and preferred futures._

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed KSTA aligns with ADB's Strategy for 2030 in terms of strengthening a country-focused approach, promoting knowledge management for applying innovative approaches in ADB operations. Foresight and futures strategic thinking presents an innovative way to develop long-term development plans together with DMCs that guide ADB's country partnership strategy (CPS) with these countries. Under Strategy 2030, ADB will use the CPS cycle as the main platform to define customized support, promote the use of innovative technologies, inform the knowledge management plan and deliver integrated solutions by combining expertise across a range of sectors and themes and through a mix of public and private sector operations
Impact Environment for better-informed planning and policy decision-making in DMCs improved.
