A world at risk in 2016

A world at risk in 2016

From the environment to international security and the coming Fourth Industrial Revolution, the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2016 finds risks on the rise in 2016.

Evidence is mounting that inter-connections between risks are becoming stronger, for example climate change and involuntary migration or international security, often with major and unpredictable impacts.

Failure of climate-change mitigation and adaptation is the number one global risk in terms of impact. Large-scale involuntary migration tops the list of risks in terms of likelihood and is the fastest rising in terms of both impact and likelihood. Cyberattacks are now considered the greatest risk to doing business in North America.
