Global risks 2015

This annual report assesses the likelihood and potential impact of 28 global risks over the coming 10 years, their interconnections and how they interplay with trends shaping the short- to medium-term risk landscape. 

Part 1 of the report explores the results of the Global Risks Perception Survey 2014. It explains the distinction between risks and trends, visualizes the likelihood of interconnections between risks, and analyses the difference in risk perceptions over different time horizons. 

Part 2 deep-dives into three topics that emerged strongly from the interconnections between risks and trends: the interplay between geopolitics and economics, rapid urbanisation in developing countries,and emerging technologies.

Part 3 discusses risk management and risk resilience: it presents survey respondents' views on which risks have most successfully been addressed over the past 10 years, and shares practices from the public and private sectors that offer ways forward to address global risks. The full methodology for the survey is shared in Appendix B. The complete set of data can be explored online at: www.weforum.org/risks (author abstract).

Abstract

This annual report assesses the likelihood and potential impact of 28 global risks over the coming 10 years, their interconnections and how they interplay with trends shaping the short- to medium-term risk landscape. 

Part 1 of the report explores the results of the Global Risks Perception Survey 2014. It explains the distinction between risks and trends, visualizes the likelihood of interconnections between risks, and analyses the difference in risk perceptions over different time horizons. 

Part 2 deep-dives into three topics that emerged strongly from the interconnections between risks and trends: the interplay between geopolitics and economics, rapid urbanisation in developing countries,and emerging technologies.

Part 3 discusses risk management and risk resilience: it presents survey respondents' views on which risks have most successfully been addressed over the past 10 years, and shares practices from the public and private sectors that offer ways forward to address global risks. The full methodology for the survey is shared in Appendix B. The complete set of data can be explored online at: www.weforum.org/risks (author abstract).
