The question of limiting damage and casualties during natural disasters

Issue in Global Mayors Forum

Humankind has always had to cope with natural disasters. However, the number of reported natural disasters, such as hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes, has increased significantly; the number of reported natural disasters between 2000 and 2009 is for instance three times number of natural disasters that occurred between 1980 and 1989. Some natural disasters cause little damage due to, for example, measures taken in case of extreme weather events. Other disasters can, however, cause tremendous material and non-material damage. Therefore, it is crucial to make sure that any casualties or damage caused by natural disasters are reduced to the minimum.
