Description
The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the preparation of development pathways for post-pandemic recovery at the Asian Development Bank (ADB) headquarters and in selected developing member countries (DMCs) to improve futures thinking capacities and to develop pathways for recovery in the transport sector using strategic foresight methodologies.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the preparation of low-carbon development pathways for post-pandemic recovery in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. The TA takes the transport sector as a point of departure within a broad cross sector development perspective, engaging a wide range of stakeholders who will be equipped with futures-thinking and foresight skills that are easy to apply in their respective domains. Development pathways consider a range of possible futures that can inform a future-ready co-design and planning process for transport policies, investments and services, creating synergies with associated sectors. The TA will enable holistic development planning and support the development of country partnership strategies that integrate the perspectives of different stakeholders and improve futures-thinking capacities.
