The World Economic Forum (WEF) released a January 19, 2021 article summarizing their report on the world's greatest risks, including a chart on rankings by likelihood and impact. A source of information for the report was the WEF's Global Risk Perception Survey which was given to WEF members.
What involvement does Effective Altruism have with the WEF if any?
There may be opportunities to engage and influence WEF communities like Global Shapers, which is their network of young people. One of the report's academic advisers was the Oxford Martin School, which resides at the University of Oxford, a foremost center of effective altruism.
Do you think the WEF report is helpful for effective altruists who want to assess global risks? Or is their framework for assessment not in line with preferred methods in effective altruism? Should effective altruists want to influence this report or leave it alone as an independent assessment?
