Global Perspective

Here’s a great resource for those of you interested in global issues. Maplecroft has developed a series of 35+ interactive maps related to social, economic, political, and environmental issues. Just a few of the specific issues covered in these global maps include poverty, hunger, coruption, child labor, inequality, water, R&D, education, displacement, and natural disasters.

One of Maplecroft’s stated goals is: “Our goal is to build a map that both ourselves and our partners consider is accurate, always up to date and meaningful, thus ensuring those who use the Global maps have a greater understanding of each relevant issue – how it impacts business and society, the nature of risk and how that risk might be managed proficiently – with recent case studies to demonstrate how risk is transformed into opportunity.”
