Abstract:

The East African Scenarios Project aims to generate and sustain dialogue amongst key stakeholders on alternative possible futures that the East African region might have to confront in the coming decades. The project was launched in February 2005 and will run for a four-year period. Within the context of the East African regional integration process, the scenarios will be a tool that citizens, policy makers, technocrats, development partners and others working at the regional level can use to discuss core issues and ideas that will affect regional integration in the coming years. Since 1998, SID (Society for International Development), working with local partners and through its chapters in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, has pioneered the large-scale use of civic scenarios as a means to engage leadership to focus on alternative possible futures. Having completed the three in-country scenarios exercises, the next step is that of seeking to understand how their lessons ans key messages could be useful at a regional level. Scenarios exercises and outputs, mainly in the form of stories, explore alternative possible futures and are used by individuals, executive and leadership groups to improve their decisions. They are based on solid research and seek to combine an understanding of current trends and patterns with informed anticipation of likely events to explore possible future outcomes. The scenarios are set in the East Africa of 2030 and have been produced in an accessible format, easily readable by a wide and diverse audience.
