UNCSTD selected ‘Strategic Foresight for the Post-2015 Development Agenda’ as one of its two priority themes for 2014-2015. The Post-2015 Development Agenda aims to define the future global development framework that will succeed the UN Millennium Development Goals. The Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) was commissioned to establish an international consortium to conduct a global horizon scanning exercise to identify major technological trends and appropriate policy responses in the coming decade.
ACIIC worked closely with ZHAW, particularly on emerging technologies impacting on food and water, and on the role of international cooperation and collaboration.
A draft report is available.
