Contributing to more effective risk management of crises and disaster in Latin America and the Caribbean
The 2018 version of the Index for Risk Management for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC-INFORM) has been launched at the beginning of this year. LAC-INFORM 2018 is an update of LAC-INFORM 2017, the first version of this regional index.
LAC-INFORM is a tool to understand, measure and analyse risk among countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. It can also be used to track and monitor risk over time.
The 2018 LAC-INFORM main fndings:
In general, there are no signicant changes in risk conditions for countries of the region between 2017 and 2018. The same ten countries appear in the high and very high risk categories.
What is the Index for Risk Management?
The Index for Risk Management (INFORM) is a tool to understand and measure risk of humanitarian crises and disasters and how these conditions affect sustainable development.
The adaptation of the global INFORM model for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC-INFORM) incorporates the context of the countries in the region and provides a better comparison of among them.
How does INFORM measure risk?
Welcome to the report of the INFORM Global Risk Index for 2018.
The INFORM Risk Index is a way to understand and measure the risk of humanitarian crises and disasters, and how the conditions that lead to them affect sustainable development. INFORM partners and other organisations continue to use INFORM products to support their prioritisation and decision-making relating to crisis and disaster prevention, preparedness and response.
The INFORM Global Risk Index measures the risk of a country experiencing a humanitarian crisis that would overwhelm national capacity and lead to a need for international assistance.

El índice para el manejo del riesgo INFORM tiene como propósito identificar los municipios de Colombia que tienen altos niveles de riesgo de sufrir una crisis humanitaria que requiera de asistencia. Para el caso Colombiano, estas crisis humanitarias están asociadas a situaciones generadas por el conflicto interno o de origen natural.
Welcome to the INFORM (Index for Risk Management) 2016 global results report. INFORM is a way to understand and measure the risk of humanitarian crises and disasters, and how the conditions that lead to them affect sustainable development.
This is the second annual report of INFORM. Since last year, we have made some changes to the INFORM methodology. We have improved the way that conflict risk is measured and the model now includes new probabilistic assessments of most natural hazards.
INFORM is a new way to measure the risk of humanitarian crises and disasters. INFORM can help identify where and why a crisis might occur, which means we can reduce the risk, build peoples’ resilience and better prepare for when crises do happen.
