The African Futures Project is an ongoing collaboration between the Pardee Center and the Institute for Security Studies (ISS).
A Model for Global Forecasting
At the Frederick S. Pardee Center for International Futures, our mission is to explore, understand, and shape alternative futures of global change and human development. As part of this pursuit, we have built the International Futures (IFs) model, the most sophisticated and comprehensive forecasting modeling system available to the public. IFs uses our best understanding of global systems to produce forecasts for 186 countries to the year 2100.
Our team, based at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver, works with organizations around the world who share our interest in long-term, integrated analysis of development, security, and sustainability issues.
A new paper published today by the African Futures Project uses the International Futures model to forecast the possibility of Africa reaching targets 6.1 and 6.2 of the Sustainable Development Goals: universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
On June 15, 2016, a select group of researchers joined the beta release of DataGator, a new data-exploration and transformation tool being developed by the Fredrick S. Pardee Center for International Futures, partially funded by the Minerva Initiative.
