Globally, this century has seen some of the most devastating natural disasters in history. Natural disasters often leave a bitter legacy of retarded economic growth in its wake. Local sustainable development initiatives are needed to ensure the longevity of recovery strategies.
Between 1980 and 2000, the number of natural disasters in America doubled. From 2000 to 2010, the number doubled again. This exponential growth of natural disasters is alarming and paints as grim picture of the future if we remain unprepared. The cost of recovery for these disasters is increasing as well. Worldwide in 1980, just over $50 billion was lost to disasters. In 2010, that number skyrocketed to almost $400 billion.
The increasing frequency of natural disasters and their recovery costs will require a change in how we prepare and how we rebuild.
