Global risks are not only interconnected, but also have systemic impacts. Greater effort is needed to manage them effectively. And that is where these videos can highlight the impact.. It is one thing to analyse global risks but, in the absence of a global authority to control them, it falls to organisations, boards and individual leaders to understand their impacts and build resilience to them at both a strategic and operational level.
