Disaster Risk in Cities: Swiss Re publishes Report

"Mind the Risk" ranks cities threatened by disasters

"Mind the Risk: A global ranking of cities under threat from natural disasters" is the title of a recent report published by the reinsurance company Swiss Re. Looking at both human and economic risks faced by urban communities, the study puts Asia's megacities (Tokyo, Manila, Hong Kong-Guangzhou) on the top of the list for population-at-risk while European and US cities (Amsterdam-Rotterdam, Los Angeles, New York) lead the ranking for the highest loss potential.
