Disaster risk profile: Ethiopia

Source(s):  Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, the (GFDRR)

To create an enabling environment for dialogue on risk financing strategies and to further the understanding of disaster risk, national risk profiles have been developed for eight countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The risk profiles provide visual information and data on the hazards, exposure, and risk for multiple hazards in each country. The profiles provide an overview of which hazards, sectors and regions are most at risk of disasters, and contribute most to the national level of risk.

Specifically, the national risk profiles provide the estimated impact of disasters on population, building stock, transport networks, critical facilities, and agriculture at the national and sub-national levels. These profiles can guide initial strategic dialogue on financial protection and/or risk reduction investment opportunities to manage disaster risk, as well as help identify priorities for more detailed risk assessments if specific interventions are to be made. This document outlines disaster risks and impacts in Ethiopia.
