Natural disasters in 2013

2013 witnessed roughly the same number of disasters as 2012, though the number of affected people decreased from 124.5 million in 2012 to 97 million in 2013. This number has been steadily decreasing, especially when compared with an average of 268 million people affected per year between 2002 and 2011. This may be partially attributed to preparedness work and the role of national disaster management agencies.
