(The) WHO e-atlas of disaster risk for the European Region. Volume 1. Exposure to natural hazards. Version 2.0
  • World Health Organization (WHO). December 2011
  • This e-atlas models the distribution of five natural hazards - seismic activity, floods, landslides, heat-waves and winds - and populations' exposure to them in 32 countries of the European Region. It provides the baseline data and maps needed to assess where the potential for damage may be the greatest and to underpin the call for more resources to improve emergency preparedness, reduce the health risks to vulnerable populations and aid the emergency response. This information also supports the identification, planning and prioritization of areas for prevention and mitigation activities. The aim of the e-atlas is to raise awareness of disaster risk among ministries of health and other health stakeholders, and so stimulate improvement in their disaster-management capacity.
