Reports on Natural Disasters

On 1 June 2011, the Brookings-LSE Project on Internal Displacement will "host a discussion exploring the challenges humanitarian agencies and governments face as they respond to an increasing number of deadly natural disasters each year." They will also officially launch their report, "A Year of Living Dangerously: A Review of Natural Disasters in 2010," referenced earlier in this post.

In the interim, here are two new reports that also tracked disaster trends in 2010:

  • Annual Disaster Statistical Review 2010: The Numbers and Trends (Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters, May 2011) [text]
  • Time's Bitter Flood: Trends in the Number of Reported Natural Disasters (Oxfam, May 2011) [text]
