The aim of the regional adaptation of the global INFORM model for the Latin America and Caribbean region (LAC-INFORM) is to count with a risk tool that incorporates a set of risk indicators that capture the realities of the Latin America and Caribbean region (LAC) and provide a realistic comparison of the countries within the region. The LAC-INFORM results are a valuable input into any analysis that supports planning or resource allocation processes at the regional level. The tool will be used to support regional prevention and preparedness actions, for example of the REDLAC group. It can also contribute to the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Sustainable Development Goals, etc.
