The World Economic Forum has released its Global Risks Report 2019. For the third year in a row, climate change and climate change-related risks dominate the list, accounting for five of the top 10 risks by both likelihood and impact. The report provides an opportunity to place the global risk landscape into context and identify priority areas for action this year. The Global Risks Perception Survey, which surveyed nearly 1,000 decision-makers from the public sector, private sector, academia and civil society, found 9 out of 10 respondents expect worsening economic and political confrontations between major powers this year. Over a ten-year timeframe, extreme weather and climate-change policy failures are seen as the greatest threats. The report can be downloaded here, and a very good article analysing some of the results has appeared on the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s, The Strategist.
