Accountability and transparency

In an exceedingly uncertain policy environment, national parliaments and governments face 
numerous challenges. Technological innovation of economies and new domestic and international political conditions, including societal disruptions related to the degradation of ecosystem services and natural resource depletion and to climate change, could very well result in a different future than the one envisaged in most predictions.

If governments fail to adapt to this new reality, democracy and freedoms are more than likely to worsen and impede effective governance.
