Where are the world's risk hotspots?

Liberia tops the world for experience of harm from everyday risk

The World Risk Poll has created a new index called the Experience of Harm Index, which highlights the countries where citizens have the highest levels of experience of everyday risk. 

This index measures harm from seven everyday risks: severe weather, violent crime, food you eat, electrical powerlines, mental health issues, water you drink and household appliances.

The index shows that Liberia tops this index due to experience of harm from severe weather, followed by Zambia and Mozambique both of which experience high levels of harm from the water they drink.

The safest countries are Uzbekistan and Singapore where the greatest source of harm is food, and Turkmenistan where the greatest harm they experience is from household appliances.

To download the full report and for more key findings, visit The Lloyd's Register Foundation World Risk Poll website.
