Oasis Risk Explorer

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

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?

The Resilient Planet Data Hub

Climate and nature resilience metrics. For people, planet and prosperity.

The Resilient Planet Data Hub brings the common language of risk needed to mobilise action and finance for resilience at international, local and system levels.

The Risk Viewer, included on the Resilient Planet Data Hub website, compares risks arising from multiple hazards at a global scale. It provides easily viewed risk metrics to understand risk to our people, our planet, and our prosperity. The components of risk are presented using open public good datasets describing hazard, exposure and vulnerability.

The Resilient Planet Data Hub was convened by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Insurance Development Forum, and the University of Oxford. As a cross-sector group with a common view on the critical need to guide resilience policy and capital decision-making, we came together to fix this information gap. Using open data approaches, supported by guidance and decision tools, we are building a common language of risk for all.

IDF Country Engagement

This dashboard shows countries in which the IDF is active through the GRMA and Tripartite Agreement.

Open Data Transformation Framework

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.

Other useful tools from our members and partners

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.

Access the DRF Tools

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.
