As part of the SEEPIA project, two studies regarding monitoring of important changes and future development of the environment in the Czech Republic were created.
The aim of the first study was to identify global megatrends (GMT) and their driving forces, i.e. their influencing factors, and further to describe their expected impact on the environment. The links and influence of global megatrends on the defined pillars of the European Green Deal (climate, agriculture, energy, industry, transport, etc.) are presented here. The study presents an outline of the primary areas on which future scenarios of environmental development in the Czech Republic should focus. The scenarios are one of the main outputs of the SEEPIA project.
The general principles and procedures of the Horizon Scanning, a method used to identify future development trends, are presented in the second study. Also prerequisites for increasing the effectiveness and usability of HS results are presented and connections and problems that should be solved during foresight activities are described here.
An analysis of the contextual framework of the environment in the Czech Republic is available (only in Czech) here.
An analysis of current horizon scanning systems is available (only in Czech) here.
