TOPICS GEO Natural Catastrophes

2016 saw the highest natural disaster losses of the past four years. At US $175bn, they were back up in the mid-range, where they are expected to be. A bitter pill for many of those affected was that the share of uninsured losses – the gap in cover – remained high, with around 70% of losses not covered by insurance. By taking on some of the financial burden, insurance can do much to help people and countries get back on their feet quickly following a natural disaster.


The latest issue of Topics Geo focuses on resilience: how losses can be reduced or – better still – prevented, and how to overcome a disaster as quickly as possible if one does strike.
