As part of the stakeholder dialogue conducted in the SHAPE project, the second and final multi-stakeholder workshop was held in the week of April 4-8, 2022. Taking place as an online event, the workshop focused on first quantitative results of the new and co-created Sustainable Development Pathway scenarios (SDPs).
Designed to capture different regional perspectives, the workshop consisted of multiple focus sessions distributed over the course of the week with participants from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America. In the workshop, context-specific sustainable development priorities and challenges for human well-being and the CLEW nexus were discussed, next to the desirability and feasibility of the different SDPs for each region. The workshop aimed at fostering the discussion about the use of the SDPs in multiple contexts, while at the same time obtaining feedback for the final model runs and for the dissemination of the project results. The regional sessions were further complemented by a focus session with participants from global level organisations allowing for cross-scale comparisons.
The workshop was a very valuable opportunity for direct knowledge exchange between SHAPE consortium members, a dedicated group of stakeholders and further academic experts from diverse backgrounds.
The workshop was part of a series of multi-stakeholder events in SHAPE that have been conducted throughout 2020 and 2021. More information can be found here.
