What are natural catastrophes?
Natural disasters are extreme events that usually lead to major damage. Destroyed buildings, railways and roads are just a few examples of the impact of natural disasters.
Types of natural disasters
Natural disasters can be divided into:
- volcanic eruption
- severe rainfall
- draught and fires
One example of a natural disaster are the bushfires in Australia. In 2019, there were numerous fires across the country. The fire spread quickly and the general damage was unprecedented in scale. The problem was exacerbated by the dry and windy weather conditions.
Natural disaster preparedness & business impact
According to author Gary R. Webb (Businesses and Disasters: Empirical Patterns and Unanswered Questions) and others, companies are rather poorly prepared for such events. Measures are often meagre and concern only the necessary first aid equipment and the training of employees as well as training on how to behave. Elaborate plans are rare.
The impact of catastrophes depends on several factors: The intensity, whether there was direct damage, whether the infrastructure failed and in which sector the company is located.
