UAE One of Top Countries to Handle Risk Says UN

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) and the United Nations Development Program released ‘The Future of Knowledge: a Foresight Report,’ listed the UAE as one of the best-prepared countries to handle risks and challenges in the future.

The country was listed alongside the USA, UK, Switzerland, and Australia.

According to the report, a nation's readiness to handle risks depends on the efficiency of its workforce in terms of skills and advancements in fields of knowledge, which include education, research and development, innovation, science and technology, economics, and the enabling environment.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program, launched the third edition of ‘The Future of Knowledge: A Foresight Report,’ during the seventh session of the Knowledge Summit at Expo 2020 Dubai on March 14 and 15.

The report is a leading analytical study that reviews the knowledge landscapes of the future, and differences between countries’ transformational capabilities in relation to key global risks, providing new insights on the capabilities of countries to address risks in the future, and support national leaders in ensuring resilience.
