Reports on my radar
  • Climate change poses new challenges to central banks, which include “green swan” risks: potentially extremely financially disruptive events that could be behind the next systemic financial crisis.

  • Debates on water focus usually on scarcity rather on quality which is  equally, or more, important. In fact, rich and poor countries alike endure high levels of water pollution which impacts nearly all SDGs. The report "Quality Unknown : The Invisible Water Crisis" by the World Bank sheds light on the hidden dangers that lie beneath the water’s surface and elucidate strategies for combating them.
  • The tenth edition of the annual Emissions Gap Report prepared by the United Nations Environmental Program revisits the gap rationale and how it has evolved, comparing the expectations following the Copenhagen Accord with the reality 10 years later. Sadly, Despite a decade of increasing political and societal focus on climate change and the milestone Paris Agreement, global greenhouse gas emissions have not been curbed, and the emissions gap is larger than ever.
  • Unlike the mainstream idea that automation leads to job destruction, the report “The zombie robot argument lurches on” by the Economic Policy Institute claims that there is no evidence that automation leads to joblessness or inequality.
