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). The Aid Dependency component presented in this layer points out the countries that lack sustainability in development growth due to economic instability and humanitarian crisis. It measure the countries' economic dependency to public aid, development assistance, and remittances. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk.
