• INFORM Risk Index: Disaster Risk Reduction implementation

    Understanding why and where humanitarian disasters are likely to occur is a fundamental step in saving lives and promoting sustainable development. The coping capacity dimension of the INFORM Risk Index (global risk assessment for humanitarian crises and disasters) measures the ability of a country to cope with disasters in terms of organized activities, infrastructure and governmental effort. The indicator presented in this layer quantifies the level of implementation of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) activity for each country. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk (poorest DRR implementation).
