Charting our Water Future 2030: Economic frameworks to inform decision making

The world is increasingly turning its attention to the issue of water scarcity. Many countries
face water scarcity as a fundamental challenge to their economic and social development; by
2030 over a third of the world population will be living in river basins that will have to cope
with significant water stress, including many of the countries and regions that drive global
economic growth.
Across the globe, policy makers, civil society and the business sector are increasingly

Deciding the Future: Energy Policy Scenarios to 2050

With this study WEC seeks to contribute further
to the debate on global energy sustainability and
to the understanding of prospective collective
roles in achieving WEC’s mission, “to promote
the sustainable supply and use of energy for the
greatest benefit of all.” The study aims to:

Transport Technologies and Policy Scenarios to 2050

Transport is one of the major global consumers
of energy and therefore has an important role in
meeting the primary objective of the World
Energy Council, sustainable energy for all.
Transport is the only energy sector in which the
energy itself is mobile during consumption,
rather than being delivered for use at a fixed
location. For this reason, energy for transport is
dominated by petroleum, which is widely
available, relatively inexpensive and from which
easily transportable liquid fuels of high energy

Energy Technology Perspectives 2012 - Pathways to a Clean Energy System

Technologies can and must play an integral role in transforming the energy
system. The 2012 edition of Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP 2012) shows clearly
that a technological transformation of the energy system is still possible, despite current
trends. The integrated use of key existing technologies would make it possible to reduce
dependency on imported fossil fuels or on limited domestic resources, decarbonise
electricity, enhance energy effi ciency and reduce emissions in the industry, transport

World Energy Technology Outlook 2050

WETO-H2 is structured around a business-as-usual case, and features two specific scenarios
that reflect the political will of Europe to be at the forefront of the struggle against climate
change and to promote new clean energy technologies:
The “reference case” describes the developments of the world energy system up to 2050, and
the related CO2 emissions assuming a continuation of existing economic and technological
trends. Without determined action, energy demand will double and electricity demand will

What ambitions for European defence in 2020

What Ambitions for European Defence in 2020? ran out of print within a month of publication, and many orders for copies were left outstanding. Instead of immediately ordering
a reprint, a slightly revised edition giving all contributors the chance to refresh their
conclusions in the light of the Irish Lisbon Treaty referendum results was decided as a

What the future holds: Insurance 2020

On January 1, 2000 the global economy was peaking, with booming stock and labor markets.
The Internet was changing everything from how consumers bought insurance to how aircraft
manufacturers bought supplies. Then, the dot com boom quickly went bust and terrorists
attacked the World Trade Center. After an extended slump, western economies recovered
from these shocks and reached new peaks in mid-2007, only to crash again in the most severe
economic downturn since the Great Depression. Unlike previous cycles, emerging economies

Water - a global innovation outlook report

For a species that prides itself on scientific
discovery, we know startlingly little about
the resource that is most crucial to our
survival: water. 11
This lack of understanding applies not just
to the layperson who unquestioningly
consumes water. But also to the scientists,
academics, businesspeople and
policymakers who study water for a living.
“To make any progress, we experts must first admit our
own ignorance,” says John Cronin, Director and CEO of The
Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries. “We don’t know

The future of democracy in the face of climate change

FDSD’s work on the future of democracy in the face of climate change is grounded in two hypotheses:
- First, that climate change will impact on democracy, when democracy is understood as a political system (see Paper Two). Democracy itself could even be threatened by climate disruption and related emergencies in some parts of the world if suitable mitigation and adaptation strategies are not adopted as soon as possible (as discussed later in this paper).
