INFORM Risk Index: Recent shocks
Understanding why and where humanitarian disasters are likely to occur is a fundamental step in saving lives and promoting sustainable development. The main focus of humanitarian organizations is people. And people affected by recent natural disasters are considered more vulnerable than the rest of the population. As part of the Vulnerability dimension of the INFORM Risk Index (global risk assessment for humanitarian crises and disasters), the "Recent Shocks" indicator identifies the countries that are recovering from humanitarian crisis situation by taking into account the population affected by natural disasters in the last 3 years.
