“The World in 2025” first underlines the major future trends: geopolitical transformations in terms of population, economic development, international trade or poverty. Secondly, it elucidates the tensions: natural resources (food, energy, water and minerals), migrations or urbanisation. Lastly, transitional pathways have been drawn: towards a new production and consumption model, towards new rural-urban dynamics, towards a new gender and intergenerational balance. In summary, the sub-title of this publication
“Rising Asia and socio-ecological transition” is explicit and could be an inspiring source for the future strategy of the European Union.
