ILO: Heat stress spike predicted to cost global economy US$2,400 milliard a year

02.07.2019 16:12 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of now, a heat stress at work linked to climate change is set to have a massive impact on global productivity and economic losses, especially within agriculture and construction, UN Radio says referring to the ILO (UN International Labour Organization) Working On A Warmer Planet report. As to the report, the world poorest countries will be worst affected (in part. West Africa and South-East Asia countries); the economic loss will be equivalent to 80 million full-time jobs — or 2.2% of total working hours worldwide — within 2030. As to the report, the total cost of these losses will be US$2,400 milliard. It is to be admitted, the report calculations are based based on a global temperature rise of only 1.5% Celsius by the end of this century. The report warns that an excess heat at work is an occupational health risk and in extreme cases can lead to heatstroke, which can be fatal. As to the report, now about 940 million people are engaged within the global agriculture. The agrarians are set to be worst hit by rising temperatures, so the agricultural sector will be responsible for 60% of global working hours lost from heat stress, by 2030. Reportedly, other at-risk sectors include construction, waste collection, emergency services, transport, tourism and sports, with southern Asian and western African States suffering the biggest productivity losses, equivalent to approximately 5% of working hours by 2030.
