GAR for Tangible Earth
Tablet computer users can also enjoy the GAR for Tangible Earth (GfT) free application. GfT, or “gift”, is a fully interactive stand-alone application, which features a 3D globe interface that contains decades of dynamic earth science data sets, including disaster events from all GARs.
The Global Assessment Reports are developed on the basis of a large body of original research commissioned by and contributed to UNISDR by a wide range of partners, including independent scientific institutions, think tanks, UN agencies, governments, non-governmental organisations and businesses. This includes original case studies, analysis and survey results from businesses and governments – all available online.
The global risk analysis presented in the Global Assessment Reports is based on a joint effort by leading scientific institutions, governments, UN agencies and development banks, the private sector and non-governmental organisations. All available data is provided via the interactive Risk Viewer, the national disaster loss database platform DesInventar, and the global risk database Preview.
