Magnitude: Developing Strategies for Managing Disasters Threats
There are no such things as natural disasters, only natural hazards. Effectively all disasters are man-made when we are aware of our vulnerabilities, can predict environmental hazards but fail to mitigate their impacts. Magnitude puts players in a position to manage the risk of disasters. Players are racing against the clock to meet all of the Millenium Development Goals within their 10-year timeframe whilst being challenged by the threats of environmental shocks that may wipe out their good work. Magnitude was a collaboration between the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction and the Humanitarian Design Lab at Parsons.
