The seven most significant forces now at work changing the world out to the year 2025 are (1) population; (2) resource management and environmental degradation; (3) technological innovation and diffusion; (4) the flows of information and knowledge; (5) global economic integration; (6) conflict; and (7) governance. Together, these seven strategic forces will have a significant impact on how the world unfolds over the next two decades and beyond. Leaders need to develop new approaches and organizational structures. Strategic coalitions between governments, international organizations, the private sector, and civil society will be essential to addressing many of these and other challenges that confront us.
