A global catastrophic risk (GCR) is an event that poses a risk of major harm on a global scale.[1]

GCRs risks include, but are not restricted to, existential risks. Examples of non-existential GCRs include risks of hundreds of millions of people dying due to a natural pandemic or due to anthropogenic climate change.
