Recent technological advancements have ushered in a new era of the “internet of bodies” (IoB), with an unprecedented number of connected devices and sensors being affixed to or even implanted and ingested into the human body. The IoB generates tremendous amounts of biometric and human behavioral data.

The discovery of diagnoses and treatments that could save or improve lives requires access to large data sets, but such access has historically been blocked by variations in data security, patient privacy and data interoperability issues globally.

The COVID-19 crisis has thrown into sharp focus the importance of digital connectivity in daily life. As many countries underwent lockdown periods, digital infrastructure was critical to mitigate the impact of stay-at-home restrictions.

Genomic data collection is accelerating in historically understudied and excluded populations. The information will fill knowledge gaps, spur medical discoveries and lead to more targeted and appropriate care; however, it comes with significant risk if ungoverned.

As the COVID-19 pandemic has swept the globe, putting immense pressure on healthcare systems and economies around the world, connectivity needs have changed abruptly. The response to COVID-19 has significantly affected connectivity trends, mobile technology use cases and the outlook for 5G deployment and adoption.

COVID-19 is a watershed moment for the digital transformation of business. The rules for success have changed and are ever more reliant on harnessing the power of digital models to create new value and experiences. Accelerating digital transformation, with purpose, is essential for companies to survive and thrive in the new normal.

The COVID-19 crisis and the political, economic, and social disruptions it has caused have exposed the inadequacies of our current economic systems.

The report highlights the need for a fundamental transformation across three socio-economic systems, which represent over a third of the global economy and provide up to two-thirds of all jobs. These systems are: food, land and ocean use; infrastructure and the built environment; and extractives and energy.

The purpose of this report is to identify and drive forward practical actions for advertisers, publishers, agencies and platforms to improve the media ecosystem in this phase of “building back better” post-COVID-19.The report focuses on the near-term and medium-term actions that can be taken to improve the financial viability, resilience and sus

The World Economic Forum now ranks biodiversity loss as a top-five risk to the global economy, and the draft post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework proposes an expansion of conservation areas to 30% of the earth’s surface by 2030 (hereafter the “30% target”), using protected areas (PAs) and other effective area-based conservation measures (OECM
