Topics Geo natural catastrophes 2010: analyses, assessments, positions

Source(s):  Münchener Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft (Munich Re)

This issue reports on the most catastrophic events of 2010, which was the year with the second-highest number of loss-related natural catastrophes, 2007 being the highest, since we began keeping global statistics in 1980. For the first time, this issue also includes an opinion column in which it discusses current topics – in this issue, climate protection strategies, including an analysis of the results of the negotiations of the Cancún Climate Summit in December 2010.

The issue also focuses on two events: (i) the volcanic eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland in spring 2010, which demonstrated to the globalised world just how ill-prepared it is; and (ii) the 2010 unusually active hurricane season with numerous hurricanes but few losses.
