A few websites that geographers should use more often....
One of the world's leading global insurers - link to the Swiss definition of what is a hazard in World at Risk.
A fantastic visual mapping treasure trove. In their own words: "We analyse over 500 global risks and issues to provide a comprehensive portfolio of indices, interactive maps, scorecards, briefings and in-depth reports."
The UN's dedicated Climate Change web page - very useful for up-to-date resources and news feeds.
A fascinating website by the UN which looks at regions and stories passed over by the main international news corporations.
A new home page favourite for me! Excellent for geopolitics, hazards and all types of geography at all scales.
