Visions of risk: a review of international indicators of disaster risk and its management

A report for the ISDR Inter-Agency Task force on Disaster Reduction Working Group 3: Risk, Vulnerability and Disaster Impact Assessment, December 2004

This report reviews the performance and future possibilities for disaster risk indexing drawing on three international indexing initiatives. These initiatives provide the first comprehensive global and regional assessments of disaster risk. They point towards the ways in which indexing can contribute to enhanced transparency and effectiveness in development planning and disaster management.

The executive summary presents a review of the results of the indexing projects, a comparison of project methodologies, opportunities for verification and complementarity between the indexing programmes, and recommendations for further work.
