Emerging Risks in the 21st Century: An Agenda for Action


The OECD Futures Project on Emerging Systemic Risks was a two year project (2000-2002) conducted within the framework of the OECD International Futures Programme (IFP), under the supervision of a Steering Group composed of the representatives of 19 governmental departments, 7 corporations and 3 international organisations. It led to the publication of "Emerging Risks in the 21st Century: An Agenda for Action", a cross-sectoral analysis of risk management issues in the 21st Century.
