Logistics 2050

Will we be able to create sustainable prosperity, or are we on the way to a climate crash? Is the world interconnected or fragmented? Which new technologies shape our everyday lives? In a new study entitled “Delivering Tomorrow: Logistics in 2050," Deutsche Post DHL presents five sweeping, sometimes radical, prospects for the world in 2050 as well as the impact they would have on the logistics industry.

Thinking about the Arctic's Future: Scenarios for 2040

The warming of the Arctic could
mean more circumpolar
transportation and access for
the rest of the world—but also
an increased likelihood of
overexploited natural
resources and surges of
environmental refugees.
The Arctic is undergoing an
extraordinary transformation early
in the twenty-first century—a transformation that will have global impacts. Temperatures in the Arctic are
rising at unprecedented rates and
are likely to continue increasing
throughout the century.
Significant environmental changes

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

Global Transport Scenarios 2050

Over the next four decades, the global transportation
sector will face unprecedented challenges related
to demographics, urbanization, pressure to
minimize and dislocate emissions outside urban
centres, congestion of aging transport
infrastructure and growth in fuel demand...Regional inputs on transport policies, existing and
potential developments in both fuels and
technologies, in addition to major driving forces and
critical uncertainties were all examined and
combined into two distinct transport scenarios

Foresight Land Use Futures project: Making the most of land in the 21st century

This Project has taken a broad and overarching look at the future of UK land use over the next 50 years. It demonstrates that there is a strong case to develop a much more strategic approach: to guide incremental land use change, incentivise sustainable behaviours, and to unlock value from land.This report shows that a reappraisal is vital to help address major challenges ahead – for example, relating to demographic shifts, climate change, and rising demand for commercial and residential development in areas such as the South East of England.
