The INFORM – Index for Risk Management – is an open source risk-assessment methodology and process that can support decisions about crisis and disaster prevention, preparedness and response. INFORM partners hope to foster shared, multi-hazard risk analysis and planning across government, humanitarian, development and DRR actors. This session presented INFORM, including recent developments in INFORM Subnational, and gave participants, including current and prospective partners, the opportunity to discuss future directions, technical development and partnerships.
