The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (BES) index, formulated by the Swiss Re Institute, marked 100 per cent of Malta’s ecosystems as fragile.

The island was well above the next-rated countries: Israel, Bahrain and Cyprus were marked at only 53, 50 and 47 per cent respectively.

Swiss Re Institute produces studies based on risk research.

Biodiversity is generally understood to mean the variation of living creatures and ecosystems, including differences between species, within species and between ecosystems.

It is considered to be important for the function of ecosystems that provide support – services – vital to life on earth, such as oxygen supply, clean air and water, and pollination.
