This list addresses a significant global risk that is largely neglected in research and policy.

Urban fires exemplify a global problem that the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) defines as ‘extensive risk’: i.e. the widespread risk to repeated or persistent hazard conditions of low or moderate intensity, often of a highly localized nature, which can lead to debilitating cumulative disaster impacts. Fire policy and mitigation strategies in poorer countries are constrained by lack of data, capacity and resources.
