INFORM Report on Disaster Risk Published

The INFORM 2016 report, collecting information on risk of disasters around the world, has recently been published. The report includes data from 191 nations.
INFORM is a fully open-source and transparent tool that can help to understand and to assess the risk of humanitarian crises before they happen. The information collected in the report is freely available to anyone interested and can be used by policy and decision makers to make better decisions regarding prevention, preparedness and response.
INFORM has been developed in response to recommendations by numerous organisations to improve the common evidence basis for risk analysis. It takes into account three dimensions of disaster risks – (1) hazards and exposure, (2) vulnerability, and (3) lack of coping capacity dimensions.
