Disaster Risks in an Interconnected World by Dr Zita Sebesvari

On 08 September 2021, UNU-EHS launched their new report ‘Interconnected Disaster Risks’, which will become an annual publication. The report analysed ten worldwide disasters from 2020/21 and highlighted how these disparate events were interconnected by their causes and impacts.

It showed particularly how one disaster directly impacted the occurrence of another, so indirectly influencing other hazards, which eventually led to cascading impacts that stem from common root causes. Using case studies, this report communicates the need for interconnected thinking to advance our risk perception and our potential for effective risk management.
