Mid-Year Review 2019: The Seven Hedges

Mid-Year Review 2019: The Seven Hedges

Globalisation encourages co-existence and an opportunity to live and interact without geographical boundaries, as information sharing is made easy by technology. Globalisation contains uncertainties that can either be good or bad, and policy stakeholders should be involved in a process that includes documenting thematic areas to focus on investment challenges associated with low probability occurrences.  Uncertainties and catastrophe that can otherwise be avoided depending on low probability attribute that governments may be unwilling to pay the costs. A thematic categorization of global affairs; otherwise referred to as “Hedging” can be used to understand and prepare for the future. The occurrences in April have shaped discussions and engagements. The review pulls out “Seven Hedges” requiring attention in the Horn of Africa by linking global incidents to responses and actions from the Horn of Africa region.
