The World Economic Forum has just published the 2015 edition of the Global Risks report. The study highlights the most significant long-term risks worldwide, drawing on the perspectives of experts and global decision-makers.
This year’s report underscores potential causes as well as solutions to global risks. Not only do the study set out a view on 28 global risks in the report’s traditional categories (economic, environmental, societal, geopolitical and technological) but also it considers the drivers of those risks in the form of 13 trends. In addition, it has been selected initiatives for addressing significant challenges.
However, 2015 differs markedly from the past, with rising technological risks, notably cyber-attacks, and new economic realities, which remind us that geopolitical tensions present themselves in a very different world from before.
