Catastrophes are responsible for 25.6 million USD of annual damages

According to the secretary of state for development, disasters caused 1.25 billion TND (763 million USD) in damages over a period of 30 years (1982- 2013), that is an average annual loss of 42 million TND (25.6 million USD).

Nearly 2 500 such events have been reported during this period, 44% of which were caused by drought, 15% by flooding, and 10% by road accidents. These statistics are poised to increase in the coming years.

To contain this evolution, the authorities remind that it is primordial to take anticipatory measures and fight in particular against unplanned urban development.
