Malta - The Safest Place on Earth?

The United Nations' UNU-EHS (United Nations University - Institute for Environment and Human Security), in its just-published World Risk Report 2011, lists Malta and Qatar as the safest nations on earth. This is among all the 173 countries surveyed, especially with regards to natural disasters, climate change and social vulnerability, as well as the countries' coping capabilities to deal with disasters and crises. The report's focal topic is "governance and civil society.

Malta Tourism Authority's CEO, Josef Formosa Gauci, said: "The 2011 WRR highlights and formally recognizes what many people around the world have known for a long time - that the Maltese islands are a very safe destination in all aspects, be they climactic, social, geological etc. This fact, coupled with the country's long-standing reputation for warm hospitality and its unique heritage and culture, make Malta and Gozo a compelling destination for the widest possible spectrum of visitors hailing from all over the world."
