This report highlights the growing strain humans are placing on many of the global systems we rely on.

“The Global Risks Report 2018 is published at a time of encouraging headline global growth. Any breathing space this offers to leaders should not be squandered: the urgency of facing up to systemic challenges has intensified over the past year amid proliferating signs of uncertainty, instability and fragility.

This year’s report covers more risks than ever, but focuses in particular on four key areas: environmental degradation, cybersecurity breaches, economic strains and geopolitical tensions. And in a new series called ‘Future Shocks’ the report cautions against complacency and highlights the need to prepare for sudden and dramatic disruptions.”
