This Working Paper describes the process of the participatory foresight exercise "Strategic Long Term Vision for Sustainable Development" and summarizes its results. It gathers the different documents of this exercise together and gives some concluding remarks on the process. This exercise was organized by the Task Force on Sustainable Development of the Federal Planning Bureau between September 2011 and February 2012, with a panel of experts brought together with this aim.
The "Strategic table with sustainable development indicators" (SDI) contains 88 indicators on 51 issues. All these indicators are classified within the DPSR framework (driving force, pressure, state, response). A trend assessment in relation to goals, established in the sustainable development strategies at different policy levels (world, EU, Belgium), could be made for 54 of the SDI. 17 of these SDI, where quantified targets with time limits were alloted, were assessed in relation to these targets. The SDI table is available in French and Dutch.
