After completing this activity, the student will be familiar with the PREVIEW Global Risk Data Platform and the various forms of hazard specific visualisations it offers.
Go to the Graphs' section of the PREVIEW Global Risk Data Platform and look under cyclones. Here you will find, among a number of graphs, a visual representation of the Mortality Risk Index (MRI) for a number of vulnerable states.
The PREVIEW Global Risk Data Platform is a multiple agencies effort to share spatial data information on global risk from natural hazards. Users can visualise, download or extract data on past hazardous events, human and economical hazard exposure, and risk from natural hazards. It covers tropical cyclones and related storm surges, drought, earthquakes, biomass fires, floods, landslides, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. The platform is managed by United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).Take quiz
