Preparing for Transformative Scenario Planning (TSP) in Namibia

Transformative Scenario Planning (TSP) is an approach that brings concerned stakeholders from different, often conflicting, perspectives together around pressing sets of problems to build stories that illustrate a range of potential futures that could come from taking different paths for dealing with those issues. By doing this, the involved stakeholders learn more about their present situation and about what dynamics in that situation are serving to help or hinder progress toward a more equitably beneficial future.

On 30th and 31st May 2016 a TSP training workshop was held at Heja Game Lodge near Windhoek. Before the training was convened, the Reos Partners team in consultation with the ASSAR team selected the topic to use as an example in the training.

The topic selected was: The future of food security in Namibia. This topic was selected in light of the current drought being experienced in the country and how this could impact Namibia’s food security.
