GENEVA, Jan 18 (AFP) Jan 18, 2008
Natural disasters such as floods, droughts, storms and heat waves affected more people globally in 2007 than 2006, despite taking fewer lives, according to a UN-linked report published Friday.

The report warned that such disasters are likely to occur more frequently, especially as China and India experience aggressive industrial growth.

"The increase in the number of floods is directly a function of development policies or lack of them," said Debarati Guha-Sapir, director of CRED -- the Belgian research centre that conducted the study.

On average, 95 million people were affected by floods worldwide between 2000 and 2006.

"China and India are definitely going to see an increase" in flooding, added Guha-Sapir.
