Each and every year, an average of 14 million people are left homeless as a result of natural disasters. Why is this the case?
Partially, this is a result of climate change and the increasing population of certain countries and the world in general. In particular, places with highly dense populations such as many countries in Asia are hit much harder than other countries by natural disasters, resulting in more and more people becoming homeless. In fact eight out of the ten countries with the greatest displacement and housing loss rates are in South and Southeast Asia including India and China.
