Risk, from a mathematical perspective, is the probability of an event multiplied by its potential impact.
The World Risk Report, which is published each year, looks at the risks of natural disasters in this way. The model used in the report takes into consideration the exposure of countries to natural disasters, but also their ability to cope and deal with such events. The end result is a World Risk Index that ranks 171 countries based on the risk that natural disasters can pose.
The below graphic comes from The Guardian, where data from the report was visualized. For the interactive version of the graphic that allows each country data point to be highlighted, go to original article.
