    Assessing the Real Cost of Disasters - The Need for Better Evidence

    Disasters disrupt socio-economic activities and cause substantial damage. Yet, their full economic impact remains largely unknown, especially the cost of smaller disasters and indirect impacts such as those due to business disruptions.

This report provides an overview of countries' efforts to improve the quality and quantity of information on the costs of disasters.
