ThinkHazard! – A Simple Platform for Understanding and Acting on Disaster Risk

Resource: ThinkHazard! – A Simple Platform for Understanding and Acting on Disaster Risk

This disaster risk visualization tool assists users in identifying natural hazards in their area and equips project leaders with the knowledge of how to reduce hazard impacts to make a project resilient throughout all stages of design and implementation. This online tool provides users with information to make risk-informed choices on eight different types of hazards: river flood, earthquake, drought, cyclone, coastal flood, tsunami, volcano and landslide. The tool provides a non-technical interpretation of the hazard, empowering non-experts in better risk management project planning and design.
