Assessing countries' ability to manage change and cultivate opportunity

The 2015 Change Readiness Index (CRI) indicates the capability of a country – its government, private and public enterprises, people and wider civil society – to anticipate, prepare for, manage and respond to a wide range of change drivers, proactively cultivating the resulting opportunities and mitigating potential negative impacts. Examples of change include:

  • shocks such as financial and social instability and natural disasters
  • political and economic opportunities and risks such as technology, competition and changes in government. 

Since 2012, the CRI has evolved to become a key tool that provides reliable, independent and robust information to support the work of governments, civil society institutions, businesses and the international development community.
