The Global Risks Report 2018

Released annually by the World Economic Forum, the Global Risks Report seeks to identify and analyze the most pressing risks we face.  The 2018 Report highlights four major categories of risks: (1) persistent inequality and unfairness, (2) domestic and international political tensions, (3) environmental dangers and (4) cyber vulnerabilities.  It also details the growing systemic challenges resulting from the interconnectedness of different types of risks and the increasing complexity of global systems.

The 2018 report also presents the results of the Global Risks Perception Survey 2017-2018, which asked experts and decision-makers to assess the likelihood and impact of 30 global risks over the next 10 years.  The report also includes three new sections added this year: Future Shocks, Hindsight, and Risk Reassessment.
