Climate Risk

Vanuatu ranked the most hazardous country in the world

This has been confirmed by a report put together by the United Nations Development Programme, titled as the ‘Economic Impacts of Natural Hazards on Vulnerable Populations in Vanuatu’.

The report also stated that tropical cyclones with associated storm surges and flooding are the principal hazard affecting Vanuatu, but the country is also exposed to earthquakes and tsunamis, volcanoes and droughts.

The report was launched Wednesday under the new ‘Leaving No One Behind in the Digital Era- Pacific Insurance and Climate Adaptation’ Programme.
