Oasis Risk Explorer is an educational tool developed by the Insurance Development Forum in partnership with Oasis and Maximum Information. Oasis Risk Explorer introduces users to the process and data choices involved in modelling catastrophe risk, in a step-by-step guided workflow. It provides a base level of experience in the process of designing parametric insurance products.
CatRiskTools is a public good resource showing where catastrophe risk models are available, and where there are risk modelling gaps. CatRiskTools helps you to understand: How many models exist for a country and hazard? Where there are gaps in model coverage globally? Who provides which models and how to access the model? Use the catalogue below, or find more information at idf-rmsg.github.io/CatRiskTools
The Global Resilience Index Initiative (GRII) will provide reference data on composite climate and natural hazard risks to inform and protect populations and economies, particularly in emerging and developing countries.
This essential, strategic-level information will be open and accessible to all, using shared standards and consistent metrics at local to global scales. Until now this data has remained unavailable, inaccessible and inconsistent even in developed countries.
Convened by the IDF, the GRII is a multi-partner public good, designed to advance adaptation and align financial flows towards resilient development.

This dashboard shows countries in which the IDF is active through the GRMA and Tripartite Agreement.
The Open Data Transformation Framework provides an open-source, free, and model-agnostic framework to convert catastrophe modelling data between model formats. It helps to increase the efficiency and transparency of data transformations in the insurance market. Community-developed data mapping can improve the consistency and quality of data transformations and data users can see more clearly the assumptions used in transforming data. The ODTF is being developed in collaboration between IDF, Oasis and the Catastrophe Resiliency Council.
The World Bank has created two educational tools to support understanding of disaster risk financing needs.
The Financial Risk Assessment Tool supports countries to better understand the risk of losses occurring from disasters, based on disaster experience.
The Financial Response Design Tool can be used to better understand the benefits of ex-ante disaster risk financing instruments. It enables users to apply different combinations of financial instrument and see the effect they could have on disaster losses.
UNDRR’s Risk Information Exchange (RiX) is a living repository of open-source global, regional and national risk data and information to improve risk knowledge, risk literacy and risk analytics. It contributes to country-led efforts to strengthen national risk data ecosystems, harmonizing risk information to facilitate risk analysis by government, UN, private, and other actors for risk-informed decision making and resilience building.
