Methodological approach

The methodological approach used to identify the main contours of each meta-issue consisted on:

  • The identification of a common vision of each meta-issue, using a holistic approach,
  • The qualitative assessment of the impacts, both positive and negative, of each meta-issue, taking into account the specificities of emerging and developing countries,
  • Exploring innovative responses to address the negative consequences of this meta-issue while capitalizing on positive levers of change and building on successful foreign experiences,
  • The identification of a grid of objective criteria to prioritize the responses identified and then to retain the most plausible and important ones.
