Disaster Trends Worlds urban population will reach 6.4 billion by 2050 (thats 70% of the worlds projected population of 9.2 billion) - United Nations, World Urbanization Prospects, 2007 Worlds population and economic centers are concentrated in vulnerable cities near earthquake faults, on river deltas or along tropical coasts. - the Economist, January 14, 2012 Growing vulnerability to to an increased incidence of costly disasters By 2050 the city populations exposed to tropical cyclones or earthquakes will more than double, rising from 11% to 16% of the worlds population. - United Nations & World Bank, Natural Hazards, UnNatural Disasters: The Economics of Effective Prevention, 2010 By 2070, seven of the ten greatest urban concentrations of economic assets that are exposed to coastal flooding will be in the developing world (vs. none in 2005). Assets exposed to flooding will rise from 5% of the world GDP to 9%. - OECD,Ranking Port Cities with High Exposure and Vulnerability to Climate Extremes : Exposure Estimates, 2007 Global annual disaster spending will triple to $185 billion by 2100 - United Nations & World Bank, Natural Hazards, UnNatural Disasters: The Economics of Effective Prevention, 2010 Spending on urban infrastructure to approach $350 trillion over next 30 years.- Booz & Co., Reinventing the City to Combat Climate Change, 2010 2011 was costliest year ever for disasters (earthquakes in Japan & New Zealand, flooding in China, Australia & Thailand, tornadoes in US). Five of ten costliest disasters have occurred in last five years. 20% of aid is now spent responding to disasters; only 0.7% is spent on mitigation.
