Professor Dale Rothman contributed to the recently released North American Environmental Outlook to 2030 report, which was published by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation. The report relies heavily on the the Pardee Centers International Futures System (IFs), and summarizes recent research concerning the major forces and underlying trends that are likely to shape the environment of North America over the next 20 years.
Erin Torkelson of the Institute for Security Studies in South Africa traveled to Denver to meet with the Pardee Center, and learn more about the International Futures System.
Barry Hughes and Jonathan Moyer went to Cape Town to train the African Union, African Development Bank and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa on the use of the IFs model and long term policy planning. The five day training was largely a success with follow up meeting scheduled for early next year in Tunis and Addis Ababa. The African Futures Project--a group project between the Institute for Security studies is also publishing a monograph on the future of Africa across issue areas that will be launched in time for the African Union summit occuring in early 2011.

The Pardee Center for International Futures is pleased to announce that the third volume of Patterns of Potential Human Progress – Improving Global Health has been released and is now available for purchase. Using the International Futures (IFs) simulation model to explore prospects for human development, this volume examines how development appears to be unfolding globally and locally, how we would like it to evolve, and how better to assure that we move it in desired directions. Earlier volumes in the series addressed the reduction of global poverty and the advance of global education. Volume three sets out to tell a story of possible futures for the health of peoples across the world. Order your copy online today!
