Future State 2030 projects a challenging future in which governments will need to take actions to address megatrend-driven risks and capitalize on megatrend-driven opportunities. Successful governments will adapt. Their governments will look different in 2030 than they do today. They will be the ones that continue to deliver for their citizens.
