GLobal IDEntifier Number (GLIDE) number

Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC), (2018)

Accessing disaster information can be a time consuming and laborious task. Not only is data scattered but frequently identification of the disaster can be confusing in countries with many disaster events. To address both of these issues, Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC) proposed a globally common Unique ID code for disasters. This idea was shared and promoted by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) of the University of Louvain in Brussels (Belgium), OCHA/ReliefWeb, OCHA/FSCC, ISDR, UNDP, WMO, IFRC, OFDA-USAID, FAO, La Red and the World Bank and was jointly launched as a new initiative "GLIDE". The GLIDE database is easily searchable by many criteria. Information in the GLIDE database may be presented in many forms, including tabular and graphic forms.

Our World in Data: Natural Catastrophes

Eds.: University of Oxford, (2018)

Our World in Data is an online publication that shows how living conditions are changing. The aim is to give a global overview and to show changes over the very long run, so that we can see where we are coming from and where we are today. We cover a wide range of topics across many academic disciplines: Trends in health, food provision, the growth and distribution of incomes, violence, rights, wars, culture, energy use, education, and environmental changes are empirically analyzed and visualized in this web publication. For each topic the quality of the data is discussed and, by pointing the visitor to the sources, this website is also a database of databases. Covering all of these aspects in one resource makes it possible to understand how the observed long-run trends are interlinked.

GAR Atlas: Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction - Risk Data Platform

Eds.: UNISDR, (2015)

All available data from GAR 13's Global Risk Update is provided via this interactive platform for vieweing and downloading. It is presented in an easily accessible manner, over the Internet. The global risk update featured in the Global Assessment Report 2015 is based on a joint effort by leading scientific institutions, governments, UN agencies and development banks, the private sector and non-governmental organisations. This platform is a multiple agencies effort to share spatial data information on global risk from natural hazards. You will be able to visualise, download or extract data on past hazardous events, human & economical hazard exposure and risk from natural hazards. It covers major hazards, initialy tropical cyclones and earthquakes and as it becomes available, information related to storm surges, drought, floods, landslides, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.

Climate Risk and Adaptation Country Profiles

The World Bank Group, (2018)

This series of 94 climate risk and adaptation profiles offers a common platform to guide access, synthesis, and analysis of relevant country data and information for Disaster Risk Reduction and Adaptation to Climate Change. The profiles are geared towards providing a quick reference source for development practitioners to better integrate climate resilience in development planning and operations. Users are able to evaluate climate-related vulnerability and risks by interpreting climate and climate-related data at multiple levels of detail. Sources on climate and climate related information are linked through the country profiles’ on-line platform, which is periodically updated to reflect the most recent publicly available climate analysis. The series is developed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), the Global Support Program of the Climate Investment Funds, and the Climate Change Team of the Environment Department of the World Bank and was made possible with the support of the Government of Luxemburg, the World Bank, and the Climate Investment Funds.

Global Risk Data Platform

Eds.: UNEP/UNISDR, (2013)

The PREVIEW Global Risk Data Platform is a multiple agencies effort to share spatial data information on global risk from natural hazards. Users can visualise, download or extract data on past hazardous events, human & economical hazard exposure and risk from natural hazards. It covers tropical cyclones and related storm surges, drought, earthquakes, biomass fires, floods, landslides, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. The collection of data is made via a wide range of partners (see About for data sources). This was developed as a support to the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR) and replace the previous PREVIEW platform already available since 2000. Many improvements were made on the data and on the application.
