In this report, the CRA team has identified fifteen key driving forces that will shape the development of the crisis. These forces are ranked by relative impact and uncertainty in order to develop a series of scenarios for the pandemic and the global response.

The CRA will continue to work on and refine these scenarios and updated versions will be published, as well as explicit policy proposals for government and the private sector to pursue.

Clients of the CRA should schedule online briefings for our analysts to explain these scenarios and how they will come to affect their industry and society.
