The Global Risks Report 2019

Jan 15, 2019

On January 15, 2019, the World Economic Forum released the 14th edition of its report, which provides an opportunity to place the global risk landscape into context at the beginning of the new year and identify priority areas for action in 2019.

The Global Risks Report 2019 is published against a backdrop of worrying geopolitical and geo-economic tensions. If unresolved, these tensions will hinder the world’s ability to deal with a growing range of collective challenges, from the mounting evidence of environmental degradation to the increasing disruptions of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

This year’s report includes another series of “what-if” Future Shocks that examine quantum computing, weather manipulation, monetary populism, emotionally responsive artificial intelligence and other potential risks. The theme of emotions is also addressed in a chapter on the human causes and effects of global risks; the chapter calls for greater action around rising levels of psychological strain across the world.

Review the report on the World Economic Forum's website.
