Estimation of damages and losses for disasters in Bogotá D.C. (Colombia)

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

Bogotá, capital of Colombia, with 8.2 million inhabitants by 2018, has a system to report different types of emergencies (Information System for Risk Management and Climate Change  SIRE), collecting information since 2002. This work presents the results of a project in which more than 200 thousand emergency records were transformed into a DesInventar database, as a first step to further estimate the damages economically. Considering the particularities and strengths of the SIRE data, the economic assessment of the damages of small and medium-scale disasters was estimated using an adapted DaLA methodology. A set of developed software tools plus DesInventar system lets District's Institute for Risk Management and Climate Change (IDIGER) analyze this data and generate monthly bulletins showing data, graphs and maps with predetermined analysis.

This paper is a contribution to the 2019 edition of the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR 2019).
