Scenario building is an important part of our work in the Catchment and we would like to invite your feedback on our efforts.

The purpose of the scenarios is to provide some ‘glimpses’ into the Catchment’s future. They describe what the future may hold for the Catchment given possible developments in society, economy and environment.

While the future is never certain, the scenarios we have developed are designed to be credible. The project team has sought to identify some of the critical issues that may shape the way people may live and work in the Catchment in 2050 and what challenges and opportunities they may face in light of them. We have done this by combining the views of people living and working in the Catchment with research into emerging social, economic and environmental trends. As a result of this work, we have developed three different visions of the Catchment in 2050 and would like to know your reactions to them.
What we would like you to do

We are interested to hear your views about this work. The scenario information itself is quite detailed but we think you will be able to get a general sense of the scenarios quite quickly.

We would like you to familiarise yourself with the scenarios and then offer us some structured feedback on the value of these kinds of techniques using an online questionnaire. This should only take about 5 minutes to complete.

We have divided the scenario pages into three sections.
Section 1 >> the ‘big issues’ for the next 50 years.
Section 2 >> the scenarios in written, table and map form.
Section 3 >> on-line questionnaire to assess this approach.
