This scanning report answers that question with examples of foresight and other public sector innovations to improve multi-year strategic planning. It is based on consultations with development professionals (both within and outside the UN), and the author’s own knowledge of strategic planning and foresight practices. It also includes key case studies from UN in-country teams (Lao PDR, Montenegro and Rwanda) who have experimented in different ways with foresight techniques in their UNDAF planning process.
