Interconnected Disaster Risks is an annual science-based report for the general public from the United Nations University – Institute for Environment and Human Security, first published in 2021. Recognizing that disasters are occurring at an ever faster rate despite progress being made in how we prepare and respond to them, we are continuously being caught-out by new extremes and new emerging threats. The report analyses ten disasters each year and analyses how they are interconnected with each other and with human actions. It seeks to explain the interconnections that might otherwise be missed, and describes how we can develop solutions to use these connections to our advantage. At the same time, the report is based on thorough scientific analysis and includes technical background reports for each of the ten disasters.

This report has been made possible due to the funding of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF).

We thank them for their support.
