Catrisktools provides a free and open access global directory of catastrophe risk assessment tools. It provides a comprehensive listing of available tools, with information on key attributes to help a potential user assess their applicability to the problem they are trying to solve. This includes the perils and countries they cover, tool capabilities, and links to providers’ websites. Commercial and non-commercial tools are included. The directory can be searched by country, peril, and license type.
Catrisktools is maintained by the Insurance Development Forum (IDF) Risk Modelling and Mapping Group (RMMG). The RMMG is an expert working group of the IDF, comprising members from the insurance, development, and scientific research sectors dedicated to improving global understanding and quantification of disaster risk to support and enable decisions on its mitigation, adaptation and transfer. The directory is hosted in partnership with Oasis Hub Ltd.
Members of the global risk modelling community are encouraged to upload information about their tools to this directory using the upload form. The benefits of hosting information include:
- Tool providers achieve greater visibility of listed software
- Potential users are directed to providers’ websites to access tools
- Risk community benefits from an improved overview of available risk tools – aiding resource allocation and access to more views of risk.
This catalogue includes information about risk analysis tools – products which enable assessment of risk to population and exposed values in terms of numbers affected, or in economic and insured loss terms. To search datasets available for different countries, please go to Oasis Hub or the Open Data for Resilience Index.
