Global Risks Report 2010

Fundamentally, there is no new story to tell about the bewildering array of inter-related risks facing our world. What is new – and troubling – is that the linkages between them have reached unprecedented levels of intensity.

The report concludes that if there is to be effective management of highly complex risks, there will have to be “urgent action at individual, corporate, national and supranational levels. Going back to business as usual is no longer an option.” How ambitious a goal this is has recently been demonstrated by the less than satisfactory outcome of the Copenhagen Climate Summit.
