dc.descriptionThis study presents the results from the second phase of the project Global Risk and Vulnerability Index Trend per Year (GRAVITY) developed by UNEP/GRID-Geneva for the UNDP/BPRD. At the end of the first phase - the feasibility study - which consisted on the identification of global data sets and indicators for explaining casualties from natural hazards, twelve recommendations were made. They mostly consisted on the creation of geographical links (georeferencing) of the impacts from past events as recorded in the database from the Centre for Research on Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED). By deriving the extent, magnitude of the event, the exposed population could be extracted and a percentage of victims computed.
