    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The overall INFORM risk index identifies countries at risk from humanitarian crises and disasters that could overwhelm national response capacity. It is made up of three dimensions - hazards and exposure, vulnerability and lack of coping capacity. The INFORM initiative began in 2012 as a convergence of interests of UN agencies, donors, NGOs and research institutions to establish a common evidence-base for global humanitarian risk analysis. INFORM identifies the countries at a high risk of humanitarian crisis that are more likely to require international assistance. The INFORM model is based on risk concepts published in scientific literature and envisages three dimensions of risk: Hazards & Exposure, Vulnerability and Lack of Coping Capacity. The INFORM model is split into different levels to provide a quick overview of the underlying factors leading to humanitarian risk. The INFORM index supports a proactive crisis management framework. It will be helpful for an objective allocation of resources for disaster management as well as for coordinated actions focused on anticipating, mitigating, and preparing for humanitarian emergencies.
