Explore community-level disaster risk data

Community-level data from our Views from the Frontline programme is free and openly accessible to everyone.

Data from over 700 communities in 49 countries

Our local-level data can be used for risk assessments in over 700 communities. By using the evidence we’ve gathered, policymakers, practitioners and communities can make risk-informed decisions on development plans and activities.

In total over 117,000 people at risk of disasters have participated in our surveys. This includes households, civil society organisations and local authorities.

The data covers a range of disaster risk reduction themes including:

  • Threats and their consequences
  • Actions and barriers to deal with threats
  • Inclusion and engagement by government
  • Risk-informed development
  • Coherence
  • Ecosystems

Our data dashboard enables you to disaggregate the data and view responses for different respondents, particular groups of people and locations.

The data can be filtered by:

  • Country
  • Community
  • Respondents (i.e. community members, civil society organisations or local authorities)
  • Rural or urban locations

You can also view responses from particular groups:

  • Children and youth
  • Elderly
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Women or men

Navigate through each data slide

The controls at the bottom of the dashboard enable you to scroll through the 10 pages of data. From the third page onwards, the orange filter system on the left enables you to filter the data: as you do so the data will automatically update to reflect your selections. You can also select individual sections of each graph to explore more in-depth information.
