In addition to understanding and envisioning their use as a management and local public policies tools, the training provided participants with other resources, especially for:  the participatory elaboration of development visions in line with the 2030 Agenda; the study of trends and construction of alternative scenarios for the future; capacity strengthening to support decision-making of local governments in the municipalities of Chile through the realization of anticipation exercises; and the formulation of lines of action to achieve the desired future.
