dc.description.abstractThe presented research aims to estimate people's risk to natural hazards in developing countries at a sub-national scale. Preliminary results show the applicability of the introduced methods for grid cells of 1 km resolution for a worldwide coverage, and of < 500 m resolution for nationwide studies respectively. The main limiting factor is the availability of relevant indicators and up-to-date datasets with global coverage for a populations'; vulnerability determination. People's risk estimations at sub-national scale must be based on population density data of fine resolution. The first undertaking required in order to tell where in development countries people are most at risk, is therefore the creation of adequate population density dataen_GB
