Strategic Scan Initiative
Climate Change Response in Cities requires
new directions........Trend Breaking Scenario planning! Scenario Optioneering
and Backcasting is becoming a favoured technique in meeting this Challenge.
The World Conference on Transport Research (WCTR) in Lisbon 2010 raised the need for
evidence based assessment tools to underpin scenario optioneering & backcasting.
An Initiative discussed at the WCTR session led to a number of
research bodies and individual researchers expressing interest in collaborating
in efforts to enable a Strategic Scan methodology to develop to fill this need.
The principles are shown in the following figure:
This raises a discussion methodology, however we are open for others to suggest
alternative or complimentary methods!
Let us know and join the collaborative effort
with other researchers in collaborating on this Initiative. You may also be able
to help develop case studies in cities or regions around the world. Help us put
together typologies that can build the database to enable these Strategic Scan
Methodologies to be applied in responding to climate change.
