Source(s):  Instituto de Estudios Ambientales (IDEA)

This technical report presents the Inter-American Development Bank - sponsored system of disaster risk and risk management indicators to estimate disaster risk loss, distribution, vulnerability and management for 12 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. It includes four components or composite indicators designed to represent the main elements of vulnerability and show each country’s progress in managing risk. The four indicators are the Disaster Deficit Index (DDI), the Local Disaster Index (LDI), the Prevalent Vulnerability Index (PVI), and the Risk Management Index (RMI).
