Interactive Prototyping Workshop: How can Foresight and Futures Planning be used to Address Antimicrobial Resistance in the Livestock Sector?
Event Date: Oct 07, 2020
Time: 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (GMT -5)
Location: United States
Online: Online Event
Host: Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock Systems
The goal of the webinar is to prototype the use of a modified approach to scenario planning. In this approach, participants are encouraged to “think backwards” from possible futures to current policy, knowledge gaps, systems, and practices. This approach promotes a creative group process that explores barriers to change and possibilities for strengthening resilience.
Two Parts, Four Groups
The webinar will be divided into two parts. The first will involve short “bullet” presentations that will provide an overview of five critical AMR uncertainties in the livestock sector in low- and middle-income countries and possible changes over the next five years, especially considering the impact of COVID-19. The second part will include a brief overview of foresight methods. Participants will then be divided into four groups where they will be given a prototyping exercise.
The webinar will end with feedback from the groups and details about a forthcoming manual on the use of foresight and futures planning.
