The contemporary world is in an era of mega-crises, caused by a host of physical, economic, political, social, and cultural factors.Through a step-by-step explication of the root concepts of problem, mess, and crisis, a mega-crisis is posited to be a set of interacting crises that are severe in impact, complex in nature, and global in fallout, with no seeming end in sight.Compared to a crisis, a mega-crisis is higher in severity and deeper in complexity.The paper argues for a stakeholder perspective in mega crisis response, as relying on the organizational standpoint is inadequate for reaching long-term resolutions.
