The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) predicts that Ukraine can lose from 10% up to 70% of the crop due to the drought and other unfavorable weather conditions as the press service of the organization reported.

‘The losses of the crop due to the unfavorable weather conditions can make from 10% up to 70% and the main cause of them are the droughts’, the FAO noted.

Moreover, it is noted that the global rise of air and ocean temperature can facilitate the increase of the frequency of heavy rains or snowfalls, the appearance of the large-scale floods and high waters, gales, extreme heat. Also, according to many predictions, the migration of the ‘south’ pests will begin as well as the diseases of the forests and agronomic crops.

At the moment, the FAO prepared the program document that contains the priority directions for the prevention of the climate changes in Ukraine and the appropriate complex of the events. It provides the optimal combination and consistency of the events that aim to decrease the greenhouse gases emission in the agricultural sector, fish farming, and foresty department. The presentation of the document and actions plan is planned for June 2018.

Earlier the UN FAO claimed that the climate in Ukraine changes faster than in other countries and forests suffer from this.

Earlier the UN claimed that the consequences of the global climate changes on the Earth and other ecological problems become the reasons of the conflict in the recent times.

Also, Stephen Hawking, the UK physicist warned that the climate conditions on the Earth will be unbearable for the humanity. The scientist predicts that the average temperature will reach 460 degrees above zero if people do not reduce the omission of the greenhouse gases. Also, he criticized Donald Trump for cancelling the US participation in the Paris Climate Agreement.
