Horizon scanning as part of environment outlooks: a literature study

Issue 13-10-2015Following the Megatrends study,1 the Flanders Environment Report (MIRA) of the Flanders Environment Agency (VMM) thought it would be useful to investigate the need for a full-fledged horizon scanning system. A horizon scanning system makes it possible to identify potential future developments and to assess their impact on the environment in time.

It is a tool intended to allow policy makers to better prepare for potential future developments and to provide them with support in the development of policy that is sufficiently robust in the face of the uncertain future.

 

Water, air and the environment. These are the three domains in which VMM is active.
