Horizon scanning


In order to keep preparing for change we will need to carry on anticipating future trends and risks. Whilst the Civil Contingencies Act currently limits forward planning to 5 year time horizon the government recognises the merits of longer-term planning and the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre
is constantly in engaged in anticipating future global trends with a 30 year out time horizon. In Bristol we would like to use and build on this work as well as the future scenarios developed by Arup for this strategy (see Appendix) to evolve our planning for emerging challenges such as security of infrastructure and other city services to cyber threats.
