KPMG Future State 2030

“Major global forces taking shape today will significantly impact the business landscape for the public and private sector through to 2030. 

 

While global megatrends have been documented on a macro scale, KPMG International (KPMG) wanted to delve more deeply into the implications for national governments and public sector policy makers and thus engaged the Mowat Centre at the School of Public Policy and Governance, University of Toronto, to conduct targeted research. 

 

The findings identify nine global megatrends that are most salient to the future of governments and their core responsibilities of economic prosperity, security, social cohesion and environmental sustainability. While their individual impacts will be far-reaching, the trends are highly interrelated. Therefore, governments will need to consider and evaluate their impacts both in isolation and in combinations. 

 

KPMG’s report suggests that appropriate strategies for future success will include greater cooperation in the international arena, promoting behavioural change in citizens and an increased focus on proactive measures to mitigate the worst of the impacts. 

 

Governments will be characterised by a shift towards becoming more integrated, outward focused and making better and greater use of technology. Concerted capacity development in evidence-based policy development and stakeholder management will be essential to making the most of opportunities and managing risk in a changing world.

 

There is not a unique path that all governments should follow. While this report is global in nature, the impact of each megatrend at the local level, coupled with the needs of countries of varying sizes, different stages of economic development, governance models and a host of other factors, will invariably demand different approaches.”
