• INFORM Risk Index: Socio-economical vulnerability

    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. The Vulnerability dimension of the INFORM Risk Index (global risk assessment for humanitarian crises and disasters) addresses the predispositions of a population to be affected by hazard (economic, political and social characteristics of the community). This layer presents a social vulnerability index for each country. It encompasses the socio-economical dimensions of the countries' vulnerability: inequalities, aid dependency, and development & deprivation. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk.
