In 2018, there were some 10,300 fatalities reported caused by natural disaster events worldwide.

Hydrological events, such as floods, have affected the largest number of people in the last decade. This year is ranked among the ten most expensive disaster years.

What does a natural disaster cost?

Hurricane Katrina has been one of the costliest disasters in the world, costing the insurance industry some 82.4 billion U.S. dollars. The resilience of societies against catastrophes have been boosted by insurance industry payouts. Nevertheless, insurance payouts are primarily garnered by industrialized countries. In emerging and developing regions, disaster insurance coverage is still limited, despite the need for improved risk management and resilience as a method to mitigate the impact of disasters and to promote sustainable growth.
