Data management throughout the national risk assessment process

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)

This document is the sixth in a series of special topics for consideration, as part of the Words into Action Guidelines on National Disaster Risk Assessment published by UNISDR. This section provides a general introduction for non-specialists to some of the main concepts involved in data management for national risk assessments.

Data management is an important part of a national risk assessment and can help ensure that the process is both effective and impactful. Risk assessment is an extremely data-intensive process and conducting a national risk assessment may involve accessing information from a wide range of stakeholders, including mapping agencies, scientific and technical ministries from across government, universities, research institutions and the private sector.
