More than at any point in human history, we live in a world where events and decisions in one part of the world can influence lives on the other side of our planet. Technology is connecting people within and across national boundaries and disrupting existing assumptions. Mounting public debt is limiting the scope of governments to act in a range of policy areas. We are seeing an increase in the frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events.
Recognising these changes are underway, KPMG International engaged with the Mowat Centre, School of Public Policy and Governance, University of Toronto to better understand the megatrends that will have the most significant impact on governments and citizens alike in the years ahead.
