As leading figures from government, business, academia and civil society head to Davos for the Annual Meeting 2024, what are the big global challenges they will be discussing?

The World Economic Forum's Global Risks Report sets out the biggest issues over the short and medium terms, based on a survey of more than 1,400 global risks experts, policy-makers and industry leaders.

This year, the impact of artificial intelligence is felt throughout the report, with rising concern about disinformation and cyberinsecurity.

Gayle Markovitz hears from two of the people who put the report together, Carolina Klint, Managing Director at Marsh McLennan, and Peter Giger, Group Chief Risk Officer at Zurich Insurance.
