Climate change is the biggest global risk for the next decade, according to a World Economic Forum report, and the Pandemic has been deflecting attention from efforts to combat the problem.

The World Economic Forum says that cybersecurity and space transport pose new risks to the world economy, in addition to the existing challenges of climate change and the pandemic coronavirus.

The Global Risks Report published on Tuesday typically comes ahead of the annual winter meeting of corporate CEOs and politicians at the ski resort of Davos, Switzerland.

Tensions persist between countries over immunization immunization inequality and mismatches in economic recovery.

The pandemic is practically forcing many people to work or to learn.
