Ecological Threat Report 2022

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Nov 03, 2022 | Ecological Threat Report

The main finding of this annual report by the Institute for Economics & Peace is that without concerted international action, current levels of ecological degradation will worsen substantially, thereby intensifying a range of social challenges, including malnutrition, forced migration and illness. The global population is expected to increase by 25 per cent to 9.8 billion in 2050 with national and regional conflicts creating further global insecurity. The Ecological Threat Report (ETR) identifies 27 hotspot countries - home to 768 million people -that face catastrophic ecological threats, while also having the lowest levels of societal resilience. These countries are mainly clustered in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and the MENA region. Many ecological threats exist independently of climate change. Globally, climate change will have an amplifying effect, causing further ecological degradation.
