Denne rapport identificerer og vurderer nuværende og forestående globale risici (UK, 2006)


Identification of individual global risks, however, is only one part of the story. In reality, global risks rarely manifest themselves in isolation. The combination of speed (the effects of global risks travel fast), the interconnectivity of the global system as well as its deepening complexity can lead to rapid and unexpected contagion of global risks across
industries and geographical areas. The interplay of multiple global risks and their combined ripple effects can create potentially disastrous “perfect storms” –
cumulative events which cause damage far in excess of the sum of each individual risk event.

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina provided a powerful example of conflation that will have long term impacts. Avian flu may present similar global challenges, should widespread human to-human transmission occur.
