The Study of Economic Loss from Natural Disasters
The Munich Re Programme of the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy held an academic symposium, at which invited experts discussed findings and compared competing methodologies for normalising disaster losses.
The symposium provided an opportunity for presentations of latest findings and open, and progressive discussion on methodologies and the relevance of this research area to risk management planning more generally.
The symposium followed the publication of a new study by Eric Neumayer and Fabian Barthel on normalised disaster losses.
