Natural disasters data book 2022: an analytical overview

The Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC) publishes the Natural Disaster Databook annually to provide statistical and analytical perspectives of disaster data. For its 2022 issue, ADRC used the data from the Emergency Event Database (EM-DAT) downloaded on 16 May 2023 to analyze the number of occurrences, deaths, people affected, and economic losses from disaster events – focusing only on eight disaster types: drought, earthquake, extreme temperature, flood, landslide, storm, wildfire, and volcanic activity.
