The United Nations “latest scientific report on reducing risk of catastrophic events proclaims that catastrophes will grow, and become worse.

More disasters in an interconnected world are set to hit a Disaster-Famous Globe in the coming years, according to a scientific report released Monday by the United Nations Institution for Disaster Risk Reduction.

If current trends remain, the world will rise from around 400 catastrophes per year in 2015 to an influx of around 560 catastrophes a year by 2030, according to a report released by the UN Office of Disaster Risk Reduction.

In comparison, the world experienced only 90 – 100 moderate to major catastrophes a year from 1970 to 2000, according to the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction’s scientific report.

This requires a societal rethink regarding how it finances, uses and speaks about disaster risk and what it most values, according to the report.

Catastrophes hit poorer countries harder than richer ones, where the recovery costs of industries in countries that can’t afford them take a larger chunk away, said co-author Markus Enenkel of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative.
