The world is changing faster than ever. We’re connected to each other in ways that would have been thought impossible just a generation ago, enabling enormous potential but also exposing our institutions to great strain. If we are to effectively address the challenges we face as a planet, decision-makers need to keep pace and anticipate what lies ahead.

To foresee the changes awaiting us in 2014, the World Economic Forum (WEF) asked the vast network of Global Agenda Council Members to identify and prioritise the issues that will exert the greatest force on the world in the coming 12 to 18 months. Using a selective survey tool, we began by determining the top 10 global trends.

The WEF also provides extensive analysis by region and also by trend. The following is a breakout of 2014 trends by region. Please click on the graphic to expand it for easier viewing.
