In collaboration with Lloyd’s, the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies launched the 2018 version of the Global Risk Index, entitled the Lloyd’s City Risk Index 2018 earlier this year.

The Global Risk Index quantifies the amount of GDP@Risk in 279 of the world’s leading cities from 22 threats. At this workshop in November, the Centre for Risk Studies presents a detailed overview of how to use the index, including the new scenario functionality, which covers all 22 threat types and the methodology behind the number.
