Transforming risk management is an important task for Latin American countries. This report aims to comprehensively analyze risk management systems, focusing on strengthening the management of Global Catastrophic Risks (GCR). It provides a general perspective on global risks, while particularly examining Artificial Intelligence (AI), biosecurity and the effects of Abrupt Sunlight Reduction Scenarios (ASRS).
Latin America has high national and regional levels of exposure to GCRs in general. While the report finds limits in current efforts, it recommends contributions to initiatives related to nuclear disarmament and the elimination of biological weapons.
“Latin America and Global Catastrophic Risks – Transforming Risk Management” contains an interview about global catastrophic risks and global governance with Jens Orback, Executive Director of the Global Challenges Foundation.
