For the CCA in 2022, we developed a system-analysis approach, covering the economic, social, environmental and institutional dimensions of sustainable development. For each dimension, we built qualitative causal diagrams, representing the major challenges and their causes. This led to the creation of a final synthetic diagram, providing an overall view of the major systemic challenges for sustainable development.
Further, we analysed the cause-effect relationships of the macro-variables to ensure they were taken into account in policy formulation and planning. We provided a forward-looking, long-term perspective to the CCA and added to the analytical results by considering potential future events.
For youth, we held a foresight exercise on the future of their development, employment and entrepreneurship. Youth coordinators from the country’s regions learnt the basic concepts of foresight and how to use relevant tools.
