Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development

Rockefeller Foundation och Global Business Network har nyligen publicerat en scenariorapport om teknikens framtida roll för utvecklingen på ett internationellt plan. Frågan man arbetat runt är:

How might technology affect barriers to building resilience and equitable growth in the developing world over the next 15 to 20 years?

De resulterande scenarierna beskrivs så här:

LOCK STEP – A world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian eadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen pushback

CLEVER TOGETHER – A world in which highly coordinated and successful strategies emerge for addressing both urgent and entrenched worldwide issues

HACK ATTACK – An economically unstable and shock-prone world in which governments weaken, criminals thrive, and dangerous innovations emerge

SMART SCRAMBLE – An economically depressed world in which individuals and communities develop localized, makeshift solutions to a growing set of problems
