As part of the scenario development process that informs the modelling work for the Global Resources Outlook 2023, the International Resource Panel (IRP) is inviting leading thinkers to present, in a series of webcasts on selected topics, what they see on the horizon with regards to possible and plausible futures. They discuss the key risks and opportunities in each domain and how they think risks can be managed and opportunities achieved.

The webcast series ‘What does the Global Future hold?’ is open to the public. It includes talks followed by Q&A sessions with speakers. 

In this episode of the International Resource Panel Webcast Series: What does the Global Future hold, Wolfgang Lutz is invited to discuss what he sees on the horizon in terms of the future of "population and demography".
