Women Shaping Global Economic Governance

image of Women Shaping Global Economic Governance

Women Shaping Global Economic Governance brings together contributions from leading policymakers and thought leaders from all across the world on how to shape our economies. Written entirely by women, this book is not about women. It is written by women who want to encourage everyone, including the 50% of the global population that are women, to contribute to shaping economic governance at a time where the world is impacted by a digital, environmental and social revolution. The essays and observations show women analysing the challenges confronting economic governance and formulating concrete proposals for how to navigate this period of turbulence.



Prosperity requires a planet: Climate change matters

Climate change is a threat to prosperity. There is an increasing number of estimates of its impact. Perhaps the most well-known of these is the one that economist Nicholas Stern offered in the report he published in 2006 that climate change could damage the world’s gross domestic product (GDP) by up to 20 percentage points (Stern 2006). In a context in which institutions are working hard to improve the prosperity of society, global warming can undo all that has been achieved in record time.
