The Global Risks 2013 report is produced by the World Economic Forum with support from Marsh & McLennan Companies and other partners. It is developed from an annual survey of over 1,000 experts from industry, government, academia and civil society who were asked to review a landscape of 50 global risks.
The global risk that respondents rated most likely to manifest over the next 10 years is severe income disparity, while the risk rated as having the highest impact if it were to manifest is major systemic financial failure. There are also two risks appearing in the top five of both impact and likelihood - chronic fiscal imbalances and water supply crisis. Click here to read more.
