On January 11, the Economic World Forum presented the Global Risks Report 2017, a yearly report that features perspectives from nearly 750 experts on the perceived impact and likelihood of 30 prevalent global risks as well as 13 underlying trends that could amplify them or alter the interconnections between them over a 10-year timeframe.The WEF report categorises risks as economic, environmental, geopolitical, societal and technical, and recognises that risks are interconnected. In the 2017 report, all five environmental risks assessed - extreme weather events, a failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies, major biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse, major natural disasters, and man-made environmental damage and disasters - were ranked within the ten most likely and most impactful risks facing the world, making environmental concerns are more prominent than ever. Extreme weather events were even ranked the single most likely global risk.

The gravity of environmental risks in Global Risks Report 2017 shows how crucial the next years will be and how necessary the mission of Cadis: responding  to the natural and non-natural disaster emergencies and helping the world’s poorest and vulnerable i8n a world always more at risk.
