Does practice make perfect? Do countries become more resilient to disasters the more they experience them? Or does their resilience break down when disasters strike again and again?

Today’s guest is Sarah Cumbers, Evidence and Insight Director at the Lloyds Register Foundation. She shares the latest data from the foundation’s World Risk Poll. The poll asked people around the globe about their perceptions on risk and safety with the aim of understanding where strengths lie and what can be improved. Your host is Annette Hertwig.
