As the world around is evolving and becoming increasingly complex and interconnected, the nature of threat to global security is also transforming. The recent rise in protectionism along with nationalism, intensified geopolitical competitions and resurgence of regional conflicts all pose serious challenges to global security. Over the years, the threat of environmental risks aggravated by climate change has been a rising concern for global security. Similarly, in a world of interconnected systems, cyber security has been cited as number one threat to global economy. Furthermore, the nature of conflict and warfare is changing, conflicts are no longer limited to conventional weapons and battles. While the world has become remarkably adept at understanding how to mitigate conventional risks, we still struggle when it comes to dealing with complex risks that underpin our world. A trend towards nation-state unilateralism may make it more difficult to sustain the long-term, multilateral responses that are required to counter these cross border issues.
Countries need to work together to tackle challenges that extend beyond their own borders. Cooperative efforts are also essential for enhancing cybersecurity, tackling corruption, and mitigating and coping with climate change.
