Statistics related to natural disaster relief: In 2019, there were a total of 409 natural disaster events worldwide. The Asian Pacific region experienced the highest number of natural disasters, most likely due to its size and susceptibility.
Natural disasters affect almost every part of the world. In 2018, Indonesia faced the highest number of deaths in the world due to the earthquakes and tsunami that occurred there in September. In the United States that year, most of fatalities from natural disasters came from tropical cyclones, wildfires, heat, and drought. The most expensive natural disaster in the United States came from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 due to the destruction caused over a large area. In the decade 2010-2019, North American Hurricanes accounted for four out the five most costly natural disasters.
Statistics related to disaster relief terrorism/violence: The global terrorism index systematically ranks countries of the world according to their terrorist activity. Afghanistan ranked first on the global terrorism index with a score of 9.6 points, making it the country most affected by terrorism on Earth. In conclusion with the ranking, Afghanistan suffered from the most terrorist attacks in 2018, with 1,294 attacks and the most fatalities from terrorist attacks in 2018, with 9,961.The Global Terrorism Index is an annual ranking produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace. As even the definition of terrorism is hotly debated, it is essential to highlight that the methodologies used to measure terrorism are also contested. The Global Terrorism Index ranks 163 countries on four indicators weighted over five years. These four factors are: the number of terrorist incidents per year, the number of fatalities caused by terrorists per year, the number of injuries caused by terrorists per year, and total property damage caused by terrorism per year.
Terrorism comes in a number of forms from a variety of groups with differing intentions. The recent destruction caused by Islamic State and Boko Haram can help to explain the high rankings of Iraq and Nigeria respectively. The operation of numerous groups alongside or in conflict with Islamic State led to Afghanistan falling victim to the largest number of attacks in 2018. The effect of including this metric in the Global Terrorism Index is the high rankings of Syria and Iraq who were second and third respectively in the most attacks globally for 2018.
On the non-human casualty side of the index, property loss is an important metric as loss of shelter or livelihood has a long lasting impact on those who survive the attack physically unharmed. The high percentage of attacks in advanced economies in the most expensive terrorist attacks by insured property loss demonstrates the limitation of using comparative financial data. Although the insured losses are lower in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan, this does not suggest the impact of property loss is lower. The instability in these countries often makes insurance unaffordable for most citizens.
