According to a recent UN report, the world will experience approximately 560 disasters each year by 2030. Over the preceding 20 years, the world had seen 350-500 medium-to-large-scale disasters per year, according to a research released on March 26, 2022.
This is five times more than in the previous three decades, according to the United Nations’ Global Assessment Report (GAR 2022), released on March 26, 2022.
Climate change and poor risk management, according to the intergovernmental organisation, are to blame for the huge increase in catastrophe frequency.
The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) released the analysis ahead of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in May 2022.
