Pakistan Disaster Info Portal
Pakistan Disaster Info is a nationally owned, open source data platform that aims to enable the mandated agencies to share their geospatial datasets and maps on hazards and exposure. In order to ensure that risk information is widely accessible to all decision makers, this platform will also host newly developed datasets, hazard and risk information.
This project is being supported by Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), World Bank and Department for International Development (DFID) under the Development of a National Platform for Risk Assessment and Catastrophe risk financing Programme in Pakistan which aims to implement risk identification and financing framework that will encourage data-driven analysis and lead to a reduction in disaster risk over the long term.
The programme will test the use of evidence-based risk analysis in public policy making through a series of interventions to provide risk information, train users, and improve decision-making systems in disaster risk management.
The Pakistan Disaster Info website contains a spectrum of hazard maps, including for drought, floods, landslides, glacial lake outburst floods, earthquakes and landslides.
