Publicación: Zürich : Zurich, 2020Descripción física: 16 p.Serie: (Risk insights ; June 2020)Notas: Sumario: PERC studies provide guidance at a time when the number of disasters and their magnitude are growing at an unprecedented rate. While there has been a decline in disaster mortality (in relative terms) over the last decade, in most places there has not been significant success in halting the substantial increase in economic losses. This results in profound knock-on effects to economic growth and development as well as to the general well-being of society. Learning from past events in a systematic and deep manner is highly relevant. This paper, the latest update in our series, addresses compound risks and explains why a multiple-risk radar during the COVID-19 crisis is more important than ever. It provides a glimpse of our first wildfire reviews and updates our extensive series of post-flood studies.Materia / lugar / evento: Desastres naturales Gerencia de riesgos Catástrofes naturales Riesgos medioambientales Condiciones climáticas ambientales Evaluación de riesgos Resiliencia Otros autores: Zurich Insurance Company
