The war in Ukraine and an unprecedented wave of forcibly displaced people across Europe, the continued battle with COVID-19 in many parts of the world and numerous pressing issues—from building more diverse and equitable cultures to advancing climate action—will continue to increase the momentum, focus and societal expectations from all sectors and stakeholders. The UN estimates indicate that 18 million people will likely become affected by the war, with millions having to flee their homes. Beyond the humanitarian catastrophe, there are broader and longer-term geopolitical and economic implications from the conflict that will affect global supply chains, energy and food sectors and many other industries directly and indirectly.
APCO Worldwide’s “What’s on the Global Agenda” report, developed by APCO’s Strategic Partnerships & Global Engagement team takes stock of evolving global issues, priorities and critical global agenda-setting moments in the year ahead, from Davos to the UN General Assembly, G-20 Summit to COP-27 and many others. It identifies various common emerging themes that present opportunities for strategic engagement, cross-sectoral partnerships and collaboration to advance innovative solutions to these pressing issues on the global agenda.
