Loss of soils, forests and fisheries, as well as rising resource costs, are likely to become increasingly important to a nation's economic health, says UNEP, the UN Environment Programme.
A report issued by UNEP's Finance Initiative says resource degradation has the potential to make worse the debt crises that have already helped trigger, and deepen, the global economic downturn.
But it says despite this, environmental risks have not been taken into account when determining credit ratings or economic resilience.
UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner, speaking at the launch of the report in London, said "The time has come for a better understanding of the connection between environmental risk, and sovereign credit risk. He added that only then will investors, credit rating agencies and governments be able to plan effectively with the kind of insight aimed at ensuring long-term economic health and stability".
" for the fashion of this world passeth away."
Fashion is a general term for a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear,accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion refers to a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style with which a person dresses, as well as to prevailing styles in behaviour. Fashion also refers to the newest creations of textile designers. The more technical term, costume, has become so linked to the term "fashion" that the use of the former has been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while "fashion" means clothing more generally and the study of it. Although aspects of fashion can be feminine or masculine, some trends are androgynous.
