Description

ThinkHazard! is a web-based tool enabling non-specialists to consider the impacts of disasters on new development projects. Users of ThinkHazard! can quickly and robustly assess the level of river flood, earthquake, drought, cyclone, coastal flood, tsunami, volcano, and landslide hazard within their project area to assist with project planning and design.

ThinkHazard! is a simple flagging system to highlight the hazards present in a project area. As such, a user is only required to enter their project location – national, provincial or district name. The results interface shows a user whether they require high, medium or low awareness of each hazard when planning their project.

ThinkHazard! also provides recommendations and guidance on how to reduce the risk from each hazard within the project area, and provides links to additional resources such as country risk assessments, best practice guidance, additional websites. ThinkHazard! also highlights how each hazard may change in the future as a result of climate change.

A short user guide is available here, and the full methodology here.

ThinkHazard! is developed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, in partnership with brgm, Camptocamp, Deltares, the World Bank, and Understanding Risk.
