World Risk Report- Analysis and prospects 2017

Source(s):  Bündnis Entwicklung Hilft

The WorldRiskIndex states the risk of an extreme natural event leading to a disaster in 171 countries. The five-year-analysis shows that the disaster risk global hotspots are in Central America, West and Central Africa, Southeast Asia and Oceania. In a comparison of world regions, the disaster risk is at its highest in Oceania and at its lowest in Europe. 

The report identifies many options to lessen risk particularly in the tropical, developing coastal nations that are the most at risk, including ecosystem-based options. 

Since 2011, the WorldRiskReport has been published annually by Bündnis Entwicklung Hilft, and the WorldRiskIndex it contains was developed together with the Institute for Environment and Human Security of the United Nations University (UNU-EHS).
