Launches and things to look out for on Day 3 of Davos 2024

Future of Growth

A new World Economic Forum report released today calls for a new approach to economic growth and presents a new framework that views GDP alongside quality of growth.

The approach calls for a balance between long-term sustainability and equity with efficiency, looking at speed and quality together.

This report will be live here today.

Closing the Gap In Women's Health: A $1 Trillion Opportunity to Improve Lives and Economies

While longer life expectancies for men and women have been a societal success story, this is not the full picture. Despite living longer than men, women spend 25% more of their lives in poor health. Health burdens have a heavy impact on women’s lives, with ripple effects for broader society. To address these issues, the World Economic Forum and the McKinsey Health Institute have released a new insight report as part of the Forum's Women’s Health Initiative.

This report will be live here today.

Making a difference

2.6 billion people still don't use the internet, but the Forum's EDISON Alliance partners have improved the lives of 784 million people through 320 digital inclusion initiatives across 127 countries.

Less than 2% of global philanthropic giving was directed towards climate change in 2022. A new global effort seeks to change that.
