While it is undisputed that natural hazards are costly, the impact on, and role/level of development is still not well understood. This Special Issue covers contributions regarding both economic development per se and development policies. The focus is on factors mitigating the negative impact and/or strengthening the positive impact of natural hazards on (total factor) productivity in the global south. Resilience to the shocks of natural hazards is only partly a macroeconomic phenomenon and the field needs further analysis of, in particular, firm-level data and industry case studies.
