CHRR's Natural Disaster Profiles for Indian Ocean Countries
Entry ID: CHRR-Natural_Disaster_Profiles
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: Natural Disaster Profiles for Indian Ocean Countries

Profiles for the 13 countries listed below provide information on sub-national
areas at risk from natural hazards including cyclones, droughts, earthquakes,
volcanoes, floods, and landslides. In addition to basic geographic and
socio-economic facts, most profiles include maps that indicate how specific
areas of each country rank according to a global index of risk for each type of
disaster. Some maps are weighted by mortality, and others by the proportion of
Gross Domestic Product (GDP) impacted. Multi-hazard disaster maps show the
combined risk from key hazard groups.

The Natural Disaster Profiles were compiled by Alexandra Skorik and Matthew
Isanuk, Columbia University. Data sources include the Emergency Events Database
(EM-DAT) maintained by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters
(CRED) and the Natural Disaster Hotspots: A Global Risk Analysis report edited
by M. Dilley, R. Chen, U. Deichmann, A. Lerner-Lam, and M. Arnold and published
by The World Bank and Columbia University, 2005.

Natural Disaster Profiles are being made available for the following countries:
* Bangladesh
* Bhutan
* Burma
* India
* Indonesia
* Kenya
* Malaysia
* Maldives
* Seychelles
* Somalia
* Sri Lanka
* Tanzania
* Thailand
