The participatory approach of the future vision “Oman 2040” project is based on the Royal Directives of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said. Such a participatory approach enhances the society participation on discussing the issues, sharing the views and creating a real societal dialogue around such issues, in order to formulate the results that will shape a prosperous future for Oman.
In order to involve a wider range of stakeholders in all themes of the vision preparation, workshops will be held in all governorates of the Sultanate to inform them of the key issues identified and to include their proposals and perspectives within the future directions and long-term objectives under possible scenarios. The gaps will be analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively through specific tools such as the “gap analysis matrix”, “gap matrix” and “driving forces”. This will constitute a good platform for setting goals of realistic correlation and time range with the participation of pillar taskforces and experts on each pillar.
