What's this?
For a disaster to be entered into the database at least one of the following criteria must be fulfilled:
- Ten (10) or more people reported killed.
- Hundred (100) or more people reported affected.
- Declaration of a state of emergency.
- Call for international assistance.

Probabilistic risk results

Average Annual Loss (AAL) by hazard

What's this?
The Average Annual Loss (AAL) is the expected loss per annum associated to the occurrence of future perils assuming a very long observation timeframe. It considers the damage caused on the exposed elements by small, moderate and extreme events and results a useful and robust metric for risk ranking and comparisons.

Hazard contribution to AAL

Probable Maximum Loss (PML)

What's this?
The Probable Maximum Loss (PML) is a risk metric that represents the maximum loss that could be expected, on average, within a given number of years. PML is widely used to establish limits related to the size of reserves that, for example, insurance companies or a government should have available to buffer losses: the higher the return period, the higher the expected loss. PML always have associated a mean return period.

Mean return period in years - Values for hazard are in million US$

HFA Progress (Cycle 2013-2015)

What's this?
National government self-assessment on the implementation of disaster risk reduction actions and establishment of baselines on levels of progress achieved in implementing the five priorities of the Hyogo Framework for Action:
HFA Priority 1 - Making disaster risk reduction a policy priority, institutional strengthening;
HFA Priority 2 - Risk assessment and early warning systems;
HFA Priority 3 - Education, information and public awareness;
HFA Priority 4 - Reducing underlying risk factors;
HFA Priority 5 - Preparedness for effective response.

Levels:
1 - Minor progress with few signs of forward action in plans or policy;
2 - Some progress, but without systematic policy and/ or institutional commitment;
3 - Institutional commitment attained, but achievements are neither comprehensive nor substantial;
4 - Substantial achievement attained but with recognized limitations in key aspects, such as financial resources and/ or operational capacities;
5 - Comprehensive achievement with sustained commitment and capacities at all levels.

INFORM 2015 Risk Index

What's this?
The INFORM model adopts the three aspects of vulnerability reflected in the UNISDR definition. The aspects of physical exposure and physical vulnerability are integrated in the hazard & exposure dimension, the aspect of fragility of the socio-economic system becomes INFORM's vulnerability dimension while lack of resilience to cope and recover is treated under the lack of coping capacity dimension.
