• INFORM Risk Index: Lack of coping capacity

    Understanding why and where humanitarian disasters are likely to occur is a fundamental step in saving lives and promoting sustainable development. This layer presents the coping capacity dimension of the INFORM Risk Index (global risk assessment for humanitarian crises and disasters). It measures the ability of a country to cope with disasters in terms of organized activities, infrastructure and governmental effort. It is aggregated by a geometric mean of two categories: the institutional category covers the existence of DRR programs that address mostly mitigation and preparedness, and the infrastructure category measures the capacity for emergency response and recovery. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk.
