This booklet is written with community development workers primarily in mind. It is written for those who may be interested in facilitating scenario planning with communities and wish to know more about it. It describes the process involved and discusses the benefits, challenges and implications of the approach.
There are four sections. After a brief introduction the first section gives a flavour of the three experiences from which this booklet is drawn – two in Kenya and one in Niger. The second section discusses the role of the facilitator while the third describes the main elements of a scenario planning process. The final section offers some concluding reflections.
