A Model for Global Forecasting


At the Frederick S. Pardee Center for International Futures, our mission is to explore, understand, and shape alternative futures of global change and human development. As part of this pursuit, we have built the International Futures (IFs) model, the most sophisticated and comprehensive forecasting modeling system available to the public. IFs uses our best understanding of global systems to produce forecasts for 186 countries to the year 2100.


Our team, based at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver, works with organizations around the world who share our interest in long-term, integrated analysis of development, security, and sustainability issues.

In November 2016, Barry Hughes traveled to Berlin and Potsdam to meet with other members of the modeling community and to provide information to others on the International Futures (IFs) model.

The Pardee Center for International Futures, in a partnership with Atlantic Council and Zurich Insurance, has completed an analysis on the future of demographic risk. The analysis has been published in four articles via Zurich Insurance, one article via Atlantic Council, and a reference report via the Pardee Center.
