Join us for this high-level panel discussion as we cover food risk, water risk, rapid population growth, temperature anomalies, natural disasters - all amplified by climate change. The discussion will be grounded in IEP's data and analysis of global ecological threats.
Many ecological threats exist independently of climate change. However, climate change has an amplifying effect, causing further ecological degradation and pushing some countries through violent tipping points. The second Ecological Threat Report analyses 178 independent states and territories, covering over 2,500 sub- national administrative units, or 99.9 per cent of the world's population. It assesses threats relating to food risk, water risk, rapid population growth, temperature anomalies and natural disasters. These assessments are then combined with national measures of socio-economic resilience, to determine which countries have the most severe threats and lowest coping capabilities.
Get the full data-based story in this year's Ecological Threat Report launch.
