The work of one of our partners has been recognised by the OECD as an outstanding example of public sector innovation to provide practical advice to countries on how to make innovations work.
Jason Alexandra advised the Tasmanian government on participatory fore-sighting for irrigation R&D planning. The project identified industry and community water needs and developed a strategy that would support the expansion of irrigation while improving economic and social benefits from water resource utilisation and supporting a wider socioeconomic policy agenda.
Fore-sighting can be a useful tool for stakeholder engagement in R&D planning because it allows parties to articulate and make their assumptions about what will help shape preferred futures explicit. This helps to identify priorities and see how different aspects can be linked by the “future stories”.
