Building on a multi-year effort by a consortium of leading scientific institutions coordinated by
the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), the Global Risk Model, currently
unique in its global coverage of probabilistic risk metrics, contributes to unveiling hidden risk in
national economies worldwide.
The launch event of the GAR Atlas: “Unveiling Global Disaster Risk”, will release the first multihazard
global risk map and will bring together experts who will share their views on how these
probabilistic risk metrics based on catastrophe models are useful for informed and sustainable
decisions for managing disaster risk.
