The workshops “Using the future to make better decisions in the present” were held in Diani, Kenya and Pemba, Mozambique in September 2015. Participants included experts in poverty alleviation and sustainable resource management from government, community organizations, non-governmental organizations and conservation and education sectors in coastal Kenya.

The workshop revisited scenarios from previous workshops  and aimed to:

1) Engage stakeholders in the findings from the SPACES project.

2) Explore how human well-being and ecosystem health might change in different future scenarios.

3) Identify interventions for poverty alleviation and sustainable ecosystem management and explore how they would work under different scenarios and

4) Identify existing initiatives (“seeds”) that could change the course of the scenarios.
