SAIIA and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation invite you to a webinar exploring the prospects for building anticipatory governance for the SADC region in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a particular focus on governance, disaster risk reduction and defence and conflict risks.

The Futures Programme builds African foresight and innovation capacity to anticipate and prepare for major political, economic, social, security, technological and environmental disruptors facing the SADC region by discovering new possibilities for systemic innovation and anticipatory governance. The Futures programme aims to contribute to an anticipatory approach to regional policymaking in the sectors that will be most affected and to enable pro-active and collaborative public-private action across the region through anticipatory policy responses.

The Futures Programme research theme on Anticipatory Governance develops capacity to mitigate uncertain African futures through experimentation in engagement, policymaking, funding and regulation practice over extended timeframes to create future-orientated innovative governance responses to better navigate emerging technologies and socio-economic developments.
