The world is losing nature at a rapid pace. The world’s seas are becoming more acidic and the temperature of the globe continues to rise. This threatens food security, air quality, creates migration and increases the risk of resource conflicts - both within and between countries.
The World Economic Forum ranks the destruction of natural ecosystems, water shortages and air pollution as far greater threats than the risks associated with stock bubbles, corruption and terrorist attacks.
The damage we inflict on nature is a real political risk that affects our security and interests. Nevertheless, the importance of the environment is marginal in today's global politics.
