sigma 1/2018: Catastrophes naturelles et techniques en 2017: une année de pertes record

Les dommages assurés totaux résultant des catastrophes naturelles et techniques se sont inscrits à 144 milliards USD en 2017. Une saison cyclonique active dans l’Atlantique nord et une série de feux de forêt, de tempêtes orageuses et de pluies torrentielles dans différentes régions ont fait grimper la sinistralité globale en matière de catastrophes à un niveau jamais atteint auparavant en l’espace d’une année. Les dommages économiques totaux étaient de 337 milliards USD. En conséquence, le déficit de protection contre les catastrophes, tous périls confondus, est porté à 193 milliards USD dans le monde en 2017. A l’échelle mondiale, plus de 11 000 personnes ont trouvé la mort ou sont portées disparues dans des catastrophes, alors que des millions d’autres se sont retrouvées sans-abri.
