Follow-up Horizon Scan on Priorities for Social-Ecological Scenarios

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to have launched the second stage of our horizon scan on priorities for social-ecological scenario research.

During the first stage we have 'harvested' 62 priority questions and issues, from >40 researchers and practitioners, from >35 institutions from all over the world, for which we are grateful.

With a small team we organized, merged and clustered these contributions into 28 key questions in 5 different categories. These 28 questions now serve as the basis for the second stage - the scoring and ranking phase. We ask researchers and practitioners to rate all the 28 questions, which allows ranking and revealing the real priorities. Also, we ask participants to suggest any crucial questions currently missing from the list.

Herewith I like to invite you to contribute to this second stage. The online form can be found here: https://goo.gl/VshWk8

It will take approx. 10 minutes of your time. The success of this community-based assessment greatly depends on the willingness of researchers and practitioners to contribute. We highly appreciate your effort.

In case you have contributed to the first stage of this Horizon Scan, please note that it may be possible that you do not immediately recognize your original suggestion, as we may have edited and merged questions with similar or overarching questions. If you think none of the final 28 questions cover the key point of your original contribution, and there is thus a crucial question missing from this list, please enter the question as a new contribution.

The results of this second stage will be shared with the community, and form the basis for a final iteration. More information about the project and the process can be found on the welcome page of the online form.

Please feel free to share this request with fellow scenario experts and practitioners.

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,
Jan Kuiper
