Foresight Briefs highlight a hotspot of environmental change, feature an emerging science topic, or discuss a contemporary environmental issue. They provide a systematic way of examining possible future outcome of emerging environmental issues that can also inform decision making today. The public is provided with the opportunity to find out what is happening to their changing environment and the consequences of everyday choices, as well as to think about future directions for policy. UNEP's Foresight Briefs aim to present emerging issues, systemic insights and possible policy solutions on a wide range of topics related to our environment in a short readable document. Foresight Briefs are focused on topics that are global in scope and relevant to many of our international readers. Written in a journalistic style and including informative visuals, Foresight Briefs allows a wide range of readers to grasp the issues presented.
