The Scenarios for South Caucasus and Central Asia project provides a framework for constructive and open discussions among key stakeholders.
Through the Forum’s multistakeholder scenario planning methodology, the interactions are aimed at developing:
- New and systemic insights: In addition to producing scenarios for the region’s future economic integration, this project will also explore its systemic drivers and obstacles.
- A new and strengthened community of interest: Because the value of this project lies in its process, enhancing dialogue among the region’s stakeholders will be crucial to its success.The Forum has extensive experience in this regard and will continu
e to build on it.
- Policy and strategy impact: This process will support decision-makers across the region in determining their own policies and strategies for the economic future of the South Caucasus and Central Asia.
Approach and Output
The value of this project lies in the process. It involves a series of interviews, virtual and in-person workshops, high-level sessions at World Economic Forum events, and a final report summarizing the discussions.
The project builds on a dedicated 18-month process with key milestones linked to the different steps of the scenario planning methodology. The milestones coincide with the Forum’s main regional and global events.
