The Institute for Economics and Peace invites you to the inaugural launch of the The Ecological Threat Register (ETR).
The ETR will show both exposure to risk and the ability of nations and their resilience as - measured by Positive Peace - to deal with major impacts. Ecological risks included in the analysis are water stress, food insecurity, droughts, floods, rising temperature, sea level rise, desertification, cyclones and population growth. The ETR will highlight the global hotspots that are exposed to higher risk of ecological events, discuss the trends in ecological threats across regions and countries and in the final chapter detail resilience to ecological threats from a Positive Peace and systems theory perspective. It will also estimate likely migration patterns from possible ecological collapses.
Produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), the ETR measures ecological threats that countries are projected to face between now and 2050. Future iterations will focus on the subnational, develop a list of possible programs to fix the issues, costs associated with doing that and costs associated with no action as well as building out the areas where poor data is available.
