Risk of humanitarian crises and disasters

The overall INFORM risk index identifies countries at risk from humanitarian crises and disasters that could overwhelm national response capacity. It is made up of three dimensions - hazards and exposure, vulnerability and lack of coping capacity. This map shows details for the 12 countries with the highest overall risk.

5 year trends in risk

INFORM results are always available for at least five years, making it easy to analyse risk trends. These charts compare INFORM 2017 to INFORM 2013 to show how risk has changed globally over the last five years.

Prioritising using risk level and trends

INFORM can be used to group countries based on their current level of risk and the trend over previous years. For example, large increases in countries already with high levels of risk could be used to prioritise them for increased crisis and disaster prevention, preparedness and response.
