Biodiversity threatened in one-fifth of the world's countries


Natural resources such as food, drinking water and air and flood protection have already been significantly damaged by human actions.

Up to one-fifth of the world’s countries are threatened with ecosystem collapse due to the destruction of wildlife and wildlife habitats, according to an analysis by Swiss experts.

Natural resources such as food, drinking water and air and flood protection have already been severely damaged by human activity, and more than half of the world’s GDP depends on functional biodiversity, according to a report by Swiss insurance company Swiss Re.

At the top of the list of countries threatened by ecosystem collapse are Australia, Israel and South Africa, and at the top are India, Spain and Belgium. Countries that already have weak ecosystems and large agricultural sectors, such as Pakistan and India, are also on the endangered list.

Brazil and Indonesia, for example, have areas with intact ecosystems, but their economies depend heavily on what shows the importance of preserving such habitats.

“If ecosystem destruction continues, there will be major shortages,” said Oliver Schelske, lead author of the study.

Leading scientists warned as early as last year that humanity was in danger due to the accelerated destruction of the natural world and more than 60 world leaders vowed to stop the destruction.

The study examined drinking water and clean air supplies, food, pollination, tree felling, soil fertility, erosion control and coastal protection, as well as population density./bbgreenkosova
