Disaster Risk and Age Index

This report provides a country-by-country analysis of the disaster risks faced by older people in 190 countries, based on three dimensions: hazard and exposure, vulnerability and lack of coping capacity. It helps to measure and assess countries’ progress in supporting older populations in respect of disaster risk, highlighting gaps in international and national data sets and pointing to appropriate policies. It demonstrates clearly how leaving out older people in approaches to development, including disaster risk management planning, can lead to bad outcomes for them in disasters.
