Disaster risk reduction: 2007 global review

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)

The Disaster Risk Reduction: 2007 Global Review contrasts and compares contemporary trends and patterns in disaster risk with the progress being made by countries in implementing the priorities for action outlined by the Hyogo Framework. In particular, the Review identifies scenarios of intensive risk (where concentrations of people and economic activities are likely to experience catastrophic disaster impacts from large-scale hazard events) and scenarios of extensive risk (where more dispersed populations are likely to experience highly localised, low intensity but cumulative disaster impacts from small-scale, mainly climatic hazards). The Review examines whether current progress in implementing the Hyogo Framework will reduce mortality and economic loss risk in the face of earthquake and climatic hazard in intensive risk and extensive risk scenarios.
