Online training course on Future Visioning conducted focusing for Rapti city

A 3-day Online Training on Tomorrow's Cities Decision Support Environment (TCDSE) Course Module 1: Future Visioning has been conducted during 17-19 May 2023. The major objective of this module has been to enable the participants to implement the TCDSE’s approach and methods to deploy future visioning in their city. More than 30 participants from local governments and Provincial Infrastructure Development Authority, schools, people’s representatives and community frontliners participated in the course.

The course was conducted under the Tomorrow's Cities research project funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). This is the capacity building activity accomplished soon after MoU was signed to collaborate for making Tomorrow’s Rapti city disaster resilient. Provincial Infrastructure Development Authority (PIDA), Lumbini Province, Nepal and Tomorrow’s Cities research project have recently entered into a formal collaboration for the implementation of project activities in Rapti city, the Provincial Headquarters. NSET leads capacity building component of the research project.

The course module covered various aspects of future visioning; introduce the TCDSE and explain how future visioning feeds the TCDSE and contributes to risk-informed urban development planning; depict the methodology to connect past and everyday life experiences to different aspirations for the future using "Wheel of Urban Assets"; list out steps for translation of visions/aspirations in spatial terms; describe translation of aspirations/visions into the policy expectations; and illustrate the linkage of outputs of Future Visioning into Visioning Scenarios.
