Global Strategic Planning: Views and Prospects
The challenges and trends we are seeing in the 21st century, such as growth in global migration, global warming, the deterioration of living conditions in certain parts of the world, a scarcity of resources, the rethinking of the material economy, population growth, and aging, may have much more serious consequences than anything humanity has ever faced before. In addition, it is becoming increasingly difficult to shape an agenda for the future given the current global geopolitical, strategic, and economic standoff. At the same time, tools and institutions have been created around the world to provide opportunities that did not exist before: global institutions for the accumulation of scientific knowledge, institutions to manage megaprojects, a worldwide communication network, a global transport system, and more. In the current conditions, it is crucial to hold open discussions about the image of the future and share experience in solving urgent problems. Strategic research and planning institutions that have been set up in different countries that are interested in forming sustainable models for future development are of particular importance. The sharing of knowledge and a vision of the situation between such institutions is a key source for developing the most effective solutions. What responses are countries coming up with to the existing global challenges? How are the benchmarks and goals of socioeconomic, innovation, and technological development changing? What socioeconomic factors for the well-being of citizens will dominate in the future? What instruments should be introduced now to influence these factors? What role can strategic research and planning institutions take on in the new conditions?
