Methodology

The Index for Risk Management - INFORM - is a way to understand and measure the risk of a humanitarian crisis. INFORM is a composite indicator, developed by the JRC, combining around 50 indicators into three dimensions of risk: hazards (events that could occur) and exposure to them, vulnerability (the susceptibility of communities to those hazards) and the lack of coping capacity (lack of resources that can alleviate the impact). The index results are published once every year. They give an overall risk score out of 10 for each admin 1 , and for each of the dimensions, categories, and components of risk. The purpose of INFORM is to provide an open, transparent, consensus-based methodology for analysing crisis risk at global, regional or national level.
