PUBLICATION: Field Guide to the Future: Four Ways for Communities to Think Ahead (CIFOR, ASB, ICRAF)
By Kristen Evans, Sandra J. Velarde, Rocio P. Prieto, Sheila N. Rao, Sandra Sertzen, Karina Davila and Wil de Jong Edited by Elena Bennett and Monika Zurek, Foreword by Doris Capistrano
Coming in September 2006
"Field Guide to the Future" is a practical, step-by-step manual describing methods that can help communities think ahead and prepare for changes in their environment and natural resources. These four methods are: Scenarios, Visioning, Pathways and Projections.
"Field Guide to the Future" is for communities who depend on natural resources and all of us who work with them. The authors have collaborated with communities in the management of forests, land, and water in many parts of the world, but particularly in tropical forest margins. In this manual they share their experiences and lessons learned about methods that can help communities prepare for the future.
"Field Guide to the Future" is a collaborative effort between the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), the ASB system-wide program of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) and the Secretariat of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA).
