RISK DATA HUB

Type of network: wide public, various regional and national communities of researchers, policy makers and private stakeholders.
Participation: Eu Member states institutions and researchers that provide relevant information (methods, data, and tools) for disaster risk assessment.
Established: 2017
Activities: Collection and inventory of relevant datasets, methodologies and tools. Links to sub-regional/national platforms for data discovery. Organise workshops to support the development of Disaster Risk Management related actions. Advise on robust, scientifically founded methodologies with the intention of establishing a common and accepted scientific approach on disaster risk assessment.
Contact: Tiberiu-Eugen Antofie (JRC)
Objective in DRMKC: The main objective of DRMKC Risk Data Hub is to improve the access and share EU-wide curated risk data for fostering Disaster Risk Management (DRM). As a knowledge hub, the Risk Data Hub is expected to be the point of reference for curated EU-wide risk data, either through hosting relevant datasets or through linking to national platforms.
Platform: DRMKC Risk Data Hub

Aim and background

Link to platform DRMKC Risk Data Hub

Policies for disaster risk reduction and management have evolved from defence against hazards to a more comprehensive, integrated risk management approach, which includes prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. The implementation of this approach is currently taking place at both international and national level.
