Four approaches to anticipatory climate governance: Different conceptions of the future and implications for the present
Published Online: Sep 03 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.673
This article identifies four approaches to anticipatory governance, discernible in the social and sustainability science literatures. Each of these approaches embodies different conceptions of the future, with associated implications for actions to be taken in the present, to realize diverse ultimate ends. The figure depicts these four approaches, mapping them along with two axes (conceptions of the future (x‐axis) and implications for actions in the present (y‐axis). The four boxes of text summarize the key elements of the four approaches, with conception of the future in red text, the actions to be taken in the present in blue, and the ultimate aims in black.
