    Hi there,

    "We cannot anticipate everything that may happen in the future due to conditions in the world which are constantly changing and unpredictable."
    "We cannot anticipate everything that may happen in the future due to conditions which are constantly changing and unpredictable in the world."

    Do you see any wrong within the both similar sentences?

    "In the world" is broad and general enough so that both will work. Anything smaller than the entire planet would not have the same meaning in both constructions.

    And how about around the world in either question?
