A recent survey of academic, business, and government leaders found that they believe sustainability issues are among the top ten issues facing the world today.

A recent survey of academic, business, and government leaders found that they believe sustainability issues are among the top ten issues facing the world today.

The report – entitled the Global Agenda Survey – was released by the World Economic Forum Network of Global Agenda Councils. Participants were the 900 attendees at the Summit on the Global Agenda in Dubai.

Political and economic concerns such as the unstable global economy dominated the top of the list, but resource scarcity and sustainability clocked in at numbers 4 and 9 respectively.

It is interesting to note that the survey took place before hurricane Sandy occurred in October. The issue of climate change, especially among government leaders, might be rising to the top of the list if the survey were re-administered this month.
