Global Cities Index: New Priorities for a New World - Kearney

As they have begun to emerge from the depths of the crisis, the future of cities has become the subject of intense debate. Indeed, with pundits feverishly suggesting that the pandemic is “killing the attraction of megacities” and that they are “losing their allure,” many have begun to question whether the city can survive as a primary locus of economic and social activity. While these reactions are extreme, so too are the impacts global cities have already witnessed. Emptied city centers There’s no denying that many cities are much quieter places than before.

The methodology and quantitative analysis behind the rankings are intended to serve as a basis for designing effective measures for reducing gender gaps. This year’s 14th edition continues to build on the well-established methodology. This chapter presents the 2020 rankings, trends in both overall scores and subindex scores, as well as performances across regions. The 2020 Capacity to Combat Corruption Index. COVID-19 is posing unprecedented challenges to Latin America, including its efforts to combat corruption.

The Global Energy Innovation Index: National Contributions to the Global Clean Energy Innovation System. Since 2015, 24 nations and the EU have joined “Mission Innovation,” pledging to double public investments in energy RD&D and collaborate on key innovation challenges.

The Global Energy Innovation Index: National Contributions to the Global Clean Energy Innovation System

This report seeks to provide accountability for these commitments and lay the foundation for more ambitious measures. To sustain global prosperity and expand energy access while meeting the challenge of climate change, energy must become more reliable, more affordable, and cleaner. Fossil fuel combustion, the primary source of climate-warming emissions, still supplies about 80 percent of global energy needs—and total consumption is rising. These emissions must either be captured or eliminated in the coming years if the worst consequences of climate change are to be averted.

If dramatic emissions cuts cannot be achieved without raising energy costs or degrading performance, the energy transition will fall short. Energy innovation is a global process.

Government AI Readiness Index — Oxford Insights. The Government AI Readiness Index is a quantitative toolkit designed to provide an overview of any government’s readiness to use AI.

Government AI Readiness Index — Oxford Insights

The Index incorporates a wide range of data, from desk research on the presence of AI strategies, to Crunchbase statistics on AI startups, to UN indices, and distills it into a single number. This facilitates global comparisons, as well as the ability to track a government’s progress in this area over time. Like all indexes, however, it does not capture the full complexity of the picture on the ground.

Ghana’s relatively low score, for example, does not acknowledge developments such as Google recently choosing to open the first AI research facility in Africa there. CIPS Risk Index - The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply. How do the colours on the Country Heatmap correspond to the Country Reports? The colour coding relates to D&B country scores which are divided into seven bands ranging from DB1 (lowest risk) to DB7 (highest risk).

Each band is subdivided into quartiles (a-d) with an ‘a’ designation representing slightly less risk than a ‘b’ and so on. Only the DB7 score is not divided into quartiles. How the CIPS Risk Index works The CIPS Risk Index is composed of multiple unique assessments undertaken by D&B’s economics team of over 40 in-house economists, data analysts and contributors working in-field across the world. The Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) The Automation Readiness Index. Lloyd's City Risk Index. The extraordinary effect of the few: Just 10 threats account for 91% of the Total GDP@Risk. Humans harm themselves: Nearly half of the Total GDP@Risk is linked to Manmade threats, including Market crash, Cyber attack, Power outage and Nuclear accident. Cities with high asset values are the most financially exposed in absolute terms: Taipei, Tokyo, Seoul, New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai and London, have significant levels of economic exposure to catastrophic events.

The true cost of globalisation: In an increasingly interconnected and technologically dependent world, four Emerging threats – Cyber attack, Human pandemic, Plant epidemic and Solar storm – account for more than one fifth of the Total GDP@Risk. Market crash puts the most GDP@Risk globally: It represents nearly a quarter of all cities’ potential losses. Emerging economies have the most to lose: Lloyd’s City Risk Index 2015-2025 shows that, collectively, 71.47% of the Total GDP@Risk is carried by cities in emerging economies.

Since 2011, the EU's average innovation performance has increased by 8.8 percentage points. The EU’s performance has surpassed the United States for the first time and has a considerable lead over Brazil, India, Russia, and South Africa.

However, China is catching up at 3 times the EU's innovation performance growth rate and Canada, Australia, Japan, maintain a performance lead over the EU. Global Innovation Index.

Global Food Security Index. 2020 Global Hunger Index Results - Global, Regional, and National Trends - Global Hunger Index (GHI) - peer-reviewed annual publication designed to comprehensively measure and track hunger at the global, regional, and country levels.

Box 1.1 The Global Hunger Index (GHI) is a tool for comprehensively measuring and tracking hunger at global, regional, and national levels. GHI scores are based on the values of four component indicators: undernourishment (share of the population with insufficient caloric intake), child wasting (share of children under age five who have low weight for their height, reflecting acute undernutrition), child stunting (share of children under age five who have low height for their age, reflecting chronic undernutrition), and child mortality (mortality rate of children under age five, partly reflecting the fatal mix of inadequate nutrition and unhealthy environments). Based on the values of the four indicators, the GHI determines hunger on a 100-point scale where 0 is the best possible score (no hunger) and 100 is the worst.

Each country’s GHI score is classified by severity, from low to extremely alarming. Child mortality in Africa South of the Sahara is exceptionally high.

World Risk Index Report & Interactive Map. Risk levels are easily decoded using our simplified color indicator, with blue representing countries with lower overall risk and red representing countries with higher levels of overall risk. You can also hover over individual countries to see how they perform in 11 specific areas of risk.

You’ll notice that each country has also been assigned an overall risk percentage, which indicates that specific location’s susceptibility to risk in relation to every country in the world. Countries with low amounts of overall risk typically share common characteristics like sophisticated economies, strong institutions, quality supply chains, low prevalence of organized crime, commitment to property rights, and freedom from corruption.

Soaring flows of data and information now generate more economic value than the global goods trade. Conventional wisdom says that globalization has stalled. But although the global goods trade has flattened and cross-border capital flows have declined sharply since 2008, globalization is not heading into reverse. Rather, it is entering a new phase defined by soaring flows of data and information. Audio Remarkably, digital flows—which were practically nonexistent just 15 years ago—now exert a larger impact on GDP growth than the centuries-old trade in goods, according to a new McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) report, Digital globalization: The new era of global flows.

The world is more connected than ever, but the nature of its connections has changed in a fundamental way. Trade was once largely confined to advanced economies and their large multinational companies. Individuals are using global digital platforms to learn, find work, showcase their talent, and build personal networks. Export credits. Last Updated: 21 August 2014. Business Cycle Indicators.
