Living with Disasters (40 min; dvd; English)
Over the past 20 years four million of the world's people have been killed by drought, flood, earthquakes, and hurricanes and close to half the population of the planet have suffered some form of disruption to their lives. Living with Disasters' casts aside the familiar news headlines of misery and destruction to present the untold story - how relatively inexpensive investment can reap huge rewards; reducing the cost, both in reconstruction and in human suffering

Unnatural Disasters (24 min; dvd; English)
When a sea vanishes; when a cyclone takes thousands of lives; when a moist tropical forest ignites - we blame the weather. Whether human economic activity is causing more extreme weather conditions is still a matter of scientific uncertainty. What is in no doubt is that bad decisions have amplified human suffering and the economic costs of so-called 'natural' disasters. The disappearance of the Aral Sea, the coastal mangroves and the jungle, can be laid at the door of shortsighted and corrupt decision-making. This  'Earth Report' shows that it is poor communities worldwide who are the first to suffer from the decisions by the rich and powerful those are anything but sustainable
