Reflections are only that, reflections, nothing more nothing less. Often these reflections are related to books I read, but occasionally also other things. These are often written very late, very fast,  using notes from my mobile phone, so the grammar and spelling is horrible.

Global Risk Indicator: The dialogue has now begun

Did a keynote presentation during China’s Economic Forum and had many interesting discussions/interviews about the initiative to establish a global risk indicator. To long-term goal of the initiative is to help create global risk indicator that help support an understanding that humanities welfare, at least in ways most would find acceptable, are at risk. Such a global risk indicator can also be used to develop regional and national indicators to assess the specific risks that different counties and regions face. A greater transparency regarding risks can also help ensure that relevant measures are implemented to address the problems that seriously threaten global welfare.

Public documents will soon be available and more details regarding a workshop/panel during COP18.
