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. It represents economic, political and social characteristics of the community that can be destabilized in case of a hazard event. This layer presents the vulnerability index for each country. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk.
