Lloyd's City Risk Index 2015-2025

Lloyd's City Risk Index 2015-2025 provides groundbreaking analytics of the potential impact on the economic output (GDP@Risk) of 301 of the world's major cities from 18 manmade and natural threats.

Based on original research by the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, the Index shows how governments, businesses and communities are highly exposed to systemic, catastrophic shocks and could do more to mitigate risk and improve resilience.

Identifying the risks, modelling and measuring their impacts, and investing in greater resilience – from better infrastructure to increased insurance protection – are the first steps in this process.
