DisasterAWARE's 2024 Disaster Resilience Ranking of the Top 10 Nations by GNP

While Gross National Product (GNP) is commonly used as a barometer for a country's economic prowess, it should not be regarded as an all-encompassing indicator of national wealth. In a more nuanced assessment, one would also examine elements such as natural resources, the quality and availability of human capital, state-of-the-art infrastructure, and robust social systems.

Through this report, you can better understand how DisasterAWARE Enterprise can help your business understand these critical factors when assessing risk to your investments, operations, and most importantly, your people.

Business Continuity Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find resources to help understand climate change's impact on business?

Many organizations provide practical resources for businesses on climate adaptation, including the EPA's Climate Adaptation Resource Center. Global initiatives like the Climate Resilience Toolkit, CDP Worldwide, and the Climate Risk Innovation Initiative are other excellent sources. Most sectors also have industry-specific guidance from groups like the American Hospital Association or Responsible Corporate Office Initiative.

What does climate change cost businesses each year in revenue losses, productivity, and damage?

A recent report by Swiss Re estimated that climate change could cost the global economy $23 trillion by 2050 due to lost productivity and weather damage unless adaptation measures are implemented. In the U.S. alone, the toll of disasters on businesses in 2021 topped $145 billion. Individual companies like Apple, Chevron and Disney report billions more in direct climate risk costs annually. Taking proactive steps to adapt and build resilience can help firms mitigate these losses.

What is disaster risk mitigation and management?

Disaster risk mitigation and management refers to all the policies, strategies and practices businesses employ to reduce the impacts of climate change and weather events. This includes climate adaptation measures, emergency response planning, insurance, community engagement and early warning systems. Robust disaster risk management systematically identifies vulnerabilities, implements targeted solutions, and monitors their effectiveness at lowering climate risk exposure over time.

Are there standards to follow for business continuity planning?

Yes, organizations like the Disaster Recovery Institute International and the Business Continuity Institute have developed widely used standards for business continuity programs. These include the Professional Practices for Business Continuity Management and the Good Practice Guidelines. Adhering to standards ensures appropriate steps are taken for plan development, training, exercises, maintenance and review.
