The first detailed assessment of global volcanic risk, part of a larger international hazard assessment released on 4 March by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, will provide a detailed look at global volcanic risk and reveal the world’s deadliest volcanoes, in an attempt to save lives through prevention and response measures.
