According to a new report published on the World Economic Forum (WEF), by 2030, the natural crisis settlement industries will create 400 million jobs and will be worth 10 trillion USD. We see great potential before the impressive growth figures, even more excited when the stuff that created it solves one of the most pressing problems today.
The report warns that as the world recovers from the corona virus pandemic, the world situation will turn drastically, while threats to Earth’s nature remain and may reduce global GDP. half. Since 2019, scientists have warned about the degradation of the global life support system, human society may be at risk when that scenario becomes a reality.
The new report published on the WEF is the result of a study of the New Natural Economic Project. In particular, scientists and economists believe that the business models and the government apparatus put the natural problem solving first on the job.
” There will be no work or success on a dead planet ,” said Alan Jope, CEO of Unilever and WEF’s partner.

According to analysis at the WEF’s annual Davos meeting, there are three areas that threaten 80% of the endangered species – the food industry associated with land use, muscle building. infrastructure and buildings, energy production and mining. However, these are also the three areas that receive the most benefits when applying green, environmentally friendly remedies in the post-Covid-19 period.
The new report reads: “ We are about to reach the point where nature and climate cannot return to their original state. If recovery efforts fail to address global crises, we will miss the opportunity to avoid the worst effects. Decisions to allocate stimulus packages are likely to shape society and economy for decades to come .
” Nature can create the jobs that the economy needs, ” said Akanksha Khatri, head of the WEF Nature Action Program . There are no barriers that prevent businesses and governments from applying those green plans on a large scale, to bring millions of unemployed people back to the labor market . ”
Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado Quesada, said: “ We must see the corona virus crisis as an opportunity to re-establish humanity’s relationship with nature. My country has shown that transition to a carbon neutral economy will bring prosperity as well as employment. This is the time when we apply this model more widely . ”

Another report published this July concludes that we can protect nearly a third of the current land and sea while simultaneously promoting economic growth. The United Nations also warns that countries are focusing only on the symptoms that a pandemic causes to public health and the economy, but that the cause of the pandemic is devastating the environment.
The new report published at the WEF offers a range of solutions to increase the number of jobs and stimulate the economy, from building silos and large warehouses to prevent food spoilage and regulating natural fish so that it is effective. The result is to create 14 million jobs and increase US $ 170 billion to the total production value of the fishing industry. In addition, the report points out that agricultural subsidies (which are used in farm construction, deforestation, and the purchase of fertilizers and pesticides) should be directed to investing in farming methods. Other green practices such as carbon storage, afforestation, agricultural waste reduction, food production are more beneficial to health.
In major cities, efficient use of electricity will save US $ 825 billion by 2030. Right now, the market value of solar panels for residential roofs is already valued at US $ 9 billion and still remains. continued development potential. We are also facing opportunities for renewable energy investment; In 30 countries, the cost of producing clean electricity is equivalent to the price of energy generated by fossil fuels.
Wind energy is also a logical way to replace fossil fuels.
The WEF recognizes that many people will lose their jobs when industries disappear in the new age, so they urge governments to retrain the workforce to make the transition to a green economy fair. , no one is left behind when the country turns to a new page. It is estimated that the annual investment to subsidize all innovation opportunities outlined in the report is only 2.7 trillion USD, equivalent to the US economic stimulus package proposed in March this year.
Jennifer Morris, head of the US-based Nature Conservancy, said: “ Nature can’t wait for us to act anymore. Obviously this is not simple, when you have to change the system and the apparatus working on such a large scale. But the report outlined at the WEF makes it clear our shared responsibility to change the way we eat, live, raise, build and energize people’s lives . ”
