- We presented Oxford Economics’ global climate change scenarios developed using the latest version of our Global Economic Model, incorporating new research on the links between energy demand and changes in temperature on economic activity.

Our watchlist for 2024 also foregrounds major currency devaluations in Ethiopia and Egypt and a strong probability of coups d’état in Cameroon and Tunisia.
