71 Examples of Global Issues

 , updated on January 09, 2024
Global issues are problems and risks that impact multiple countries. The world is increasingly integrated including coordination of systems, laws, policy and institutions. This is a good thing as many problems require multiple countries to solve. However, in some cases, this delegates power to organizations that aren't directly accountable to voters in each nation. As such, solving problems at the international level tends to be difficult and contentious. The following are illustrative examples of global issues.
