The world cannot wait for the fog of geopolitical and geo-economic uncertainty to lift. Opting to ride out the current period in the hope that the global system will “snap back” runs the risk of missing crucial windows to address pressing challenges. On key issues such as the economy, the environment, technology and public health, stakeholders must find ways to act quickly and with purpose within an unsettled global landscape. This is the context in which the World Economic Forum publishes the 15th edition of the Global Risks Report.

The Science we Need for the Ocean We Want: The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)
On 5 December 2017, the United Nations declared that a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development would be held from 2021 to 2030. This Decade will provide a common framework to ensure that ocean science can fully support countries to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Decade will provide a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to create a new foundation, across the science-policy interface, to strengthen the management of our oceans and coasts for the benefit of humanity.
The State of Biodiversity in The Caribbean Community – A Review of Progress Towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets
The Report highlights achievements, good practices, success stories and lessons learnt that can be shared, as examples, among the countries in the Region, and with countries outside the Region. It also recognizes that we face challenges, including of resources and capacity, but also as a result of the impacts of climate change and the increased frequency of severe weather events.
The purpose of this study is to raise the awareness of decision makers regarding the economic dimensions of the crisis in the world’s marine capture fisheries.
This study estimated the difference between the potential and actual net economic benefits from global marine fisheries using 2004 as the base year. The estimate was made using a model that aggregated the world’s highly diverse fisheries into a single fishery. This made it possible to use the available global fisheries data such as production, value of production, and global fisheries profits as inputs to the model.
