UN’s Global Risk Data Platform

The Global Risk Data Platform, developed by the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) and UN Environment, shares spatial data information on global risk from natural hazards. It allows users to visualize, download and extract data on past hazardous events, human and economical exposure, and risk from natural hazards. It also gathers general data related to population, economic activity, land cover, and topography. The data is sourced from various global and national agencies, such as UNEP/GRID-Geneva, United States Geological Survey, European Space Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (United States), International Research Institute for Climate and Society (Columbia University), Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, and the World Bank, among others.
