What is it?
A narrative reporting resource for understanding a system at one point of time. It can include a review of issues; actors; events; historic strategies; market supply and demand; and social, political and economic context. Depending on the approach taken, Landscape Scans can: surface gaps in the system, narrow issues of importance, clarify key stakeholders and influencers, identify drivers in a system, provide a market analysis, explore funding opportunities, etc. This may be done using qualitative and/or quantitative research and usually focuses on a specific issue, field or geography.
