These two videos examine Ghana's Transformative Scenario Process (TSP). One introduces the approach while the other looks at the development of four imagined scenarios.
Transformative Scenario Planning in Ghana – Part 1
As part of the ASSAR project, a group of stakeholders from Ghana’s government, civil society, private and academic sectors met in Upper West Region’s capital town of Wa to discuss the future of agriculture and food in the region. Stakeholders tackled this difficult issue by turning to Transformative Scenario Planning (TSP), a unique approach developed by Reos Partners, which encourages people from diverse, and often conflicting, perspectives to imagine ways that the future can be changed, and to identify the leverage points that can facilitate this change.
This video provides a brief overview of the TSP process and how it was used to address the pressing challenges for agriculture and food in Ghana.
Transformative Scenario Planning in Ghana – Part 2
In the Upper West Region of Ghana, there are pressing challenges for agriculture and food. These include: climate variability; food insecurity; land tenure issues; constrained access to credit, water, farm inputs, markets and storage; and the lack of political commitment. To bring fresh thinking on how to tackle these challenges, we turned to Transformative Scenario Planning (TSP) — a process developed by Reos Partners that brings together stakeholders from diverse and often conflicting perspectives and transforms their thinking around complex issues.
In this video, we outline the four different scenarios that were developed by stakeholders at the first TSP workshop held in June 2016. The scenarios were built around two key driving forces that workshop participants thought were the most influential: access to water and political commitment.
