The map for the WorldRiskIndex shows the results of the calculations (Exposure X [Susceptibility + Lack of coping capacities + Lack of adaptive capacities]).
Here, the strong influence of exposure on the risk of individual countries is obvious, since it is the basic requirement of the underlying calculation hypothesis (multiplicative conjunction).
For example, Chile and Japan have very high exposure to natural hazards and hence a relatively high risk, although the vulnerability of both countries when compared globally is very low. This mainly results from the model calculations of the input data (“Physical Exposure”), which are the basis for the component exposure.
