Global Multihazard Proportional Economic Loss Risk Deciles
Entry ID: CIESIN_CHRR_NDH_MULTI_PELRD


Summary
Abstract: Global Multihazard Proportional Economic Loss Risks is a 2.5 minute grid of a multihazard-based

economic loss risk as a proportion of the economic productivity of the analytical unit, the grid cell. Representation of multihazard

risk is not based on a multihazard index but rather on combinations of hazard risk categories, drought, seismic, and hydro. The

drought category includes drought only. The seismic category consists of earthquake and volcano hazards. Cyclones, floods, and

landslides are included in the hydro category. For each of the six hazards considered, a binary risk surface is constructed utilizing

the three most-at-risk deciles of each hazard's global proportional economic loss risks dataset (deciles 8-10). Each of the category

risk surfaces are constructed by adding all the relevant hazard high-risk surfaces. These categorical risk surfaces are reclassified

into binary high-risk surfaces. The combination of the category risk values forms a three digit identifier for determining those

locations that are at higher-risk from multihazards. This dataset is the result of collaboration among the Columbia University Center

for Hazards and Risk Research (CHRR), International Bank for Reconstruction and Development/The World Bank, and Columbia University

Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To identify those areas that are at greater risk of multihazard economic

loss.
