Resource: 7 Preparing for High Impact, Low Probibility Events: Lessons from Eyjafjallajökull
by Bernice Lee and Felix Preston, with Gemma Green: A Chatham House Report

The frequency of high-impact, low-probability (HILP) events in the last decade such as Hurricane Katrina, the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster and the nuclear crisis and tsunami in Japan, signals the emergence of a new 'normal' – the beginning of a crisis trend. This report argues that governments and businesses remain insufficiently prepared to manage HILP crises and shoulder their economic, social and humanitarian consequences. The report sets out the economic costs of HILP events and how the impacts of a shock spread across sectors and countries in today's globalized world. The report explores two critical dimensions of the decision-making environment during a crisis – omnipresent questions of scientific and technological uncertainty, and the competing economic and political interests of key stakeholders.
