Skoll Urgent Threats Fund. A nongovernmental group that monitors risk in such areas as climate change, water scarcity, pandemic diseases, and nuclear proliferation. Skoll tackles the big four of the world of wicked problems (See previous blog post - - The Wicked on the nature of wicked problems). We live in a world in which globalization has accelerated the growing nature of wicked problems. The wicked have worldwide impacts and no single country can tackle them alone.
Good paper on the subject that Skoll supported through RAND - -
