Worldwide zones of natural disaster risk as determined by the CRESTA organisation
CRESTA zone maps are used to determine areas of elevated risk of natural hazards, particularly earthquakes, storms and floods. The zones are a widely accepted standard among the international insurance and reinsurance industries.
The CRESTA Zones product depicts worldwide zones of natural disaster risks as determined by the CRESTA organisation*. Established by the insurance and reinsurance industry in 1977 as an independent body, the organisation aims to provide a uniform standard for data accumulation control of natural hazards worldwide.
*Catastrophe Risk Evaluating and Standardising Target Accumulations (CRESTA) is currently managed by Munich Re and Swiss Re. Learn more about the CRESTA organisation at cresta.org.
