The DCDC Global Strategic Trends Programme: 2007 – 2036

“The DCDC Global Strategic Trends Programme: 2007 – 2036”

by the Development, Concepts, and Doctrine Centre (a United Kingdom Ministry of Defense think-tank)

 

“During the next 30 years, every aspect of human life will change at an unprecedented rate, throwing up new features, challenges and opportunities. Three areas of change, or Ring Road issues, will touch the lives of everyone on the planet and will underpin these processes: climate change, globalization and global inequality (see panels below). Progressive climate change will shape the physical environment within which a rapidly expanding world population will live, influencing variable access to habitable land, food and water. The volume of the world economy will grow more quickly than at any time in human history and, in socio-economic terms, will become more tightly integrated, creating globalized interdependencies and enabling multiple supra-national linkages in all areas of human endeavour.”
