AXA Future Risks Report 2022
For the first time in nine years of surveying, global experts in every region of the world ranked climate change as the top future risk facing society.
The surveys underlying the analysis, which incorporate expert opinion as well as public polling, show that both risk experts and the public place climate change higher on the list of global concerns than just a year or two ago.
Over the last year, economic and geopolitical challenges have added a new layer of uncertainty to the disruptions caused by the Covid pandemic and the climate crisis. Meanwhile, almost 70% of the general public believe that insurers will have an important role to play in mitigating future risks.
