dc.description.abstractIt is well established that development impacts on disaster outcomes and our coping with extreme and uncertain natural hazards. Evidence includes through data available from the annual Human Development Reports of the United Nations Development Programme and the World Disasters Reports of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC). The data shows that whilst deaths are generally highest in countries with low human development indices, numbers affected are significantly higher in those with medium development indices. Economic damage is highest in those with high development indices. This also indicates how relationships between disaster and development are prone to varying categorisations of human progress and types of crises.
