Natural Disaster Hotspots: A Global Analysis

Back in 2005 the World Bank released a report titled “Natural Disaster Hotspots: A Global Analysis”. It analyzes the location and characteristics of hotspots for six hazards, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, floods, drought and cyclones. Areas of risk are depicted in several excellent global maps. A corresponding citation has been added to the Publications page as well as the links to some of the maps under the Resources page in the portal.
