Catastrophes and development - Integrating natural catastrophes into development planning, Working paper series n°4

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

This illustrated report summarizes the findings of research conducted over a period of one and half years in Argentina, Honduras and Nicaragua in order to reduce disaster vulnerability. This study explores the potential impact of natural disasters on macroeconomic growth, as they can disrupt socio-economic development efforts. Three central messages emerge from this study:1) the country examples presented in this report illustrate how the impact of catastrophes can be incorporated into development planning; 2) the ability to finance recovery is crucial; evaluating the potential benefits of risk transfer alternatives requires a formal model as described in this study. Risk management involves risk identification, mitigation and financing. (UNEsCO)
