• INFORM Risk Index: Governance

    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 governance indicator presented in this layer captures the effectiveness of the governments’ effort for building resilience across all sectors of society as well as the level of misuse of political power for private benefit. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk.
