    Abstract The 2014 World Risk Report (WRR 2014) systematically considers a country’s vulnerability, and its exposure to natural hazards to determine a ranking of countries around the world based on their disaster risk. The World Risk Index 2014 (WRI 2014) as part of the World Risk Report 2014 (WRR 2014), determines the risk of becoming a victim of a disaster as a result of a natural hazard (e.g. floods, hurricanes, earthquakes etc.) for 171 countries. This year's special focus was on "Cities as an area of risk". What influence does urbanisation have on societal vulnerability to natural hazards? For the first time, 140 countries were also analyzed for the risk their urban populations face, rankings were based on 21 indicators, including share of urban population living in slums, urban literacy rate and the percentage of female workers in urban areas.
