Lloyd’s recently launched a ground breaking new study that for the first time quantifies the potential economic impact of 18 threats on 301 of the world’s leading cities, including Auckland and Wellington.
Lloyd’s City Risk Index 2015-2025 looks at the projected GDP of each city over a ten-year period and calculates how much it is at risk from manmade, natural and emerging threats. For all threats to all cities that figure totals $4.56trn, which represents a significant drag on future economic development. The Index, developed in partnership with Cambridge University’s Centre for Risk Studies, can be analysed by location and threat type. Data on each of the cities can be downloaded from the site, with further analysis available for 50 of the main locations.
