    The INFORM Severity Index is a regularly updated, and easily interpreted model for measuring the severity of humanitarian crisis globally. It is a composite index, which brings together 31 core indicators, organised in three dimensions: impact, conditions of affected people, and complexity. All the indicators are scored on a scale of 1 to 5. These scores are then aggregated into components, the three dimensions (Impact, Conditions, Complexity), and the overall severity category based on the analytical framework. The three dimensions have been weighted according to their contribution to severity: impact of the crisis (20%); conditions of affected people (50%); complexity (30%). The weightings are currently a best estimate and will be refined using expert analysis and statistical methods. Each crisis will fall into 1 of 5 categories based on their score ranging from very low to high. ACAPS – an INFORM technical partner – is responsible for collection, cleaning, analysis and input of data into the model and the production of the final results.

    INFORM is a multi-stakeholder forum for developing shared, quantitative analysis relevant to humanitarian crises and disasters. INFORM includes organisations from across the multilateral system, including the humanitarian and development sector, donors, and technical partners. The Joint Research Center of European Commission is the scientific and technical lead for INFORM. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, INFORM has released a COVID Risk Index to support the specific decision-making needs of humanitarian and other organisations. The following is an analysis that addresses key questions for humanitarian organisations by combining information from 3 INFORM products: • The new INFORM COVID Risk Index, which identifies “countries at risk from health and humanitarian impacts of COVID-19 that could overwhelm current national response capacity, and therefore lead to a need for additional international assistance”. The INFORM COVID Risk Index is • The INFORM Risk Index (Mid-2020 version), which identifies “countries at risk from humanitarian emergencies that could overwhelm current national response capacity, and therefore lead to a need for international assistance”. The INFORM Risk Index takes into account natural and human hazards, as well as vulnerability and lack of coping capacity. • The INFORM Severity Index (March 2020 version) is a regularly updated model for measuring the severity of humanitarian crises globally, which brings together indicators of impact, conditions of affected people, and complexity.

    The INFORM COVID-19 Risk Index is a composite index that identifies: “countries at risk from health and humanitarian impacts of COVID-19 that could overwhelm current national response capacity, and therefore lead to a need for additional international assistance”. The INFORM COVID-19 Risk Index is primarily concerned with structural risk factors, i.e. those that existed before the outbreak. It can be used to support prioritization of preparedness and early response actions for the primary impacts of the pandemic, and identify countries where secondary impacts are likely to have the most critical humanitarian consequences. The main scope of the INFORM COVID-19 Risk Index is global and regional risk-informed resource allocation, i.e. where comparable understanding of countries’ risk is important. It cannot predict the impacts of the pandemic in individual countries. It does not consider the mechanisms behind secondary impacts - for example how a COVID-19 outbreak could increase conflict risk.

    This layer contains information about the flood hazard estimated during the Integrated Context Analysis (ICA) run in Mozambique in 2017. Data source: Fewsnet 1975-2012, Disaster Risk Financing and Insurance (DRFI), 2012. The indicators used for the analysis were the percentage of flood extent and a qualitative classification of the district at high or very high flood risk. It should be noted that the analysis did not consider information about the flood frequency and that, in the last 5 years, flood patterns are changing and affecting the northern part of the country, which is not registering extreme flood events anymore.

    This layer contains information about the additional environmental hazards - landslides, Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF) and earthquakes - estimated during the Integrated Context Analysis (ICA) run in Pakistan in 2017. Data source: NDMA 1950-2015 (landslides and GLOF), NDMA 1905-2015 (earthquakes). The key indicators used for the analysis were 5-point scales of hazard levels ranging from very low to very high. It should be noted that these additional hazards represent aggravating factors that can provide further details to refine broad programmatic strategies, but are not to be considered as stand-alone maps. For the purpose of this analysis, only the high and very high hazards have been mapped on top of the ICA Areas (see the relative static maps for further details).

    The development of the INFORM Colombia model was initiated by OCHA and UNICEF. It is a municipallevel risk index, which identifis threats, vulnerabilities and response capacities throughout the country. The results have been used in the Humanitarian Needs Overview 2016 and by UNICEF planners and donors. The model includes specific components to evaluate risk levels for children and adolescents. Partners are now investigating if the model can be extended to cover additional countries in the region.

    INFORM Guatemala is a municipal risk index that identifies risks, threats, vulnerabilities and response capacities in the 340 municipalities of Guatemala. The municipal risk index simplifies information about crisis risk and is comprised of 29 indicators representing the three dimensions of risk: hazard and exposure, vulnerability, and lack of coping capacity. The results of the Guatemala INFORM index will be used by the National Coordination System for Disaster Risk Reduction (CONRED) for its analysis of risk of humanitarian crisis and disasters, municipal response capacities and potential humanitarian needs. Government institutions, civil society and international cooperation organizations can also use the results to focus the design and implementation of development programs and projects. The Guatemala INFORM initiative is supported by UNICEF, OCHA and WFP.
