Summary
Abstract: Global Multihazard Proportional Economic Loss Risks is a 2.5 minute grid of a multihazard-based economic loss risk as a proportion of the economic productivity of the analytical unit, the grid cell. Representation of multihazard risk is not based on a multihazard index but rather on combinations of hazard risk categories, drought, seismic, and hydro. The drought category includes drought only. The ... View entire text

Purpose: To identify areas of the world that are at greater risk of multihazard proportional economic loss.

Quality The production of the multihazard surface began by isolating those deciles most at-risk (deciles 8-10) of the individual hazard surfaces (Global Cyclone Proportional Economic Loss Risks, Global Drought Proportional Economic Loss Risks, etc.). These surfaces are reclassified into binary representing those areas considered most at-risk. Hazard categories are created by grouping specific hazards ... View entire text
