Project: "Disaster database comparative analysis"

The "Disaster database comparative analysis" report is available. The study was completed by LA RED and OSSO, by means of contract with The United Nations Program for Development, in the framework of Work Group # 3 (about risk, vulnerability and impact evaluation), that is part of the Inter Agency Task Force on Disaster Reduction of the International Strategy on Disaster Reduction. The objective was the comparison between two types of databases, one of world coverage (EMDAT of CRED) and the other one with an emphasis on LatinAmerica (Desinventar Databases), for four countries in the American continent: Jamaica, Chile, Panamá and Colombia.

The report consists of the main document and 6 annexes, which are available in Spanish as well as in the English translated version.
