Taking the risk out of using risk profiles: The Risk Viewer tool for Latin America and Caribbean
Wednesday, Dec 02, UTC 15:00 to 15:55
Organizer: World Bank
|A large number of disaster risk profiles exist that can be used for a variety of purposes: to evaluate the impact of disasters, inform risk reduction measures, assess fiscal impact of disasters and catalyze catastrophe risk insurance market growth, to name a few. However, the appropriate application of risk profiles depends on the underlying quality of their analyses for each of their components. So, how do you determine which risk profile can be used for your specific task? For the Latin America and Caribbean region, the World Bank’s Disaster-Resilience Analytics and Solutions (D-RAS) team has developed the Risk Viewer tool that answers the following questions:|
· What risk profiles are available for a given country?
· How do results compare for a given country?
· What can / can’t these profiles be used for?
· How does one country’s risk compare to that of another?
The session presents this tool and also highlights innovations in LAC on greater disaggregation of building, non-building infrastructure data; including projected climate-related future risk modelling and applications of public sector risk profiles. We invite you to join us for an interactive presentation on the tool, and discussion on how it can be used to address countries’ needs.s
