  1. Understanding Risk (UR) is a global forum that brings together experts and practitioners in disaster risk assessment.
  2. fire, arson, violence, emergency communications, drills and exercises, and intrusion.
  3. The PREVIEW - IMS project aims to identify risk and human vulnerability to natural hazards in relation with socio-economic and physical factors. This tool allows the visualisation of data on natural disasters. Users may perform zooms, pan to a particular area, add different layers of general data including cities, national parks, etc. Different backgrounds can be chosen to highlight different components reflecting vulnerability, such as population density, Human Development Index (HDI) or the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Layers of natural disasters can be added including droughts, earthquakes, fires, floods, cyclones and tsunamis.
  4. Data visualization of the disaster risk index has been designed by GRID-Europe. The pioneering Disaster Risk Index (DRI) Analysis Tool measures the relative vulnerability of countries to three key natural hazards — earthquake, tropical cyclone and flood — and identifies development factors that contribute to risk, and shows in quantitative terms, just how the effects of disasters can be either reduced or exacerbated by policy choices. Our hope is that the toolx will both help generate renewed interest in this critical development issue and help bring together stakeholders around more careful and coherent planning to mitigate the impact of future disasters.
  5. PREVIEW is a UNEP/DEWA/GRID-Europe project, initiated in 1999. It aims to help identifying risk toward natural hazards in a quantitative way. It includes the collection of datasets for several hazards (drought, earthquakes, fires, floods, landslides, tropical cyclones, tsunami and volcanoes).
