CRED crunch 60 - Technological disasters

Source(s):  Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED)

Two main groups of disasters are distinguished in the international disaster database EM-DAT: natural disasters and technological disasters. While natural hazards are associated with natural disasters, industrialization and technologies have resulted in accidents or unexpected and uncontrolled release of hazardous and explosive materials, which we consider technological disasters. 

This newsletter provides you with a general overview of the historical and more contemporary situation of technological disasters.
