Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is among the regions most challenged by extreme hydrometeorological events. Between 1998 and 2020, climate-related and geophysical events resulted in the loss of 312 000 lives and directly affected more than 277 million people. Extreme hydrometeorological events such as floods, storms, droughts, heat waves and related impacts accounted for 93% of all disasters that took place during that period.
