"Information bestows power. Lack of information can make people victims of disaster. Do aid organizations use information to accumulate power for themselves or to empower others? The report calls on agencies to focus less on gathering information for their own needs and more on exchanging information with the people they seek to support."--Jacket

"In 2009, 335 natural disasters were reported worldwide. They killed 10 655 persons, affected more than 119 million others and caused over US$ 41.3 billion economic damages. The absence of natural disasters with an extremely large human impact in 2009, so-called 'mega-disasters', was reflected by a decreased number of reported deaths, victims and economic damages, compared to the annual averages for the period 2000-2008"--Page 1
EM-DAT the International Disaster Database( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1988 the WHO Collaborating Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) has been maintaining an Emergency Events Database - EM-DAT. The main objective of the database is to serve the purposes of humanitarian action at national and international levels. It is an initiative aimed to rationalise decision making for disaster preparedness, as well as providing an objective base for vulnerability assessment and priority setting. For example, it allows on to decide whether floods in a given country are more significant in terms of its human impact than earthquakes or whether a country is more vulnerable than another for computing resources is. EMDAT contains essential core data on the occurrence and effects of mass disasters in the world from 1900 to present. The database is compiled from various sources, including UN agencies, non-governmental organisations, insurance companies, research institutes and press agencies

Health in complex emergencies : trends in 8 African countries( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report describes the picture of long-term trends in mortality, nutrition, and vaccination coverage among conflict-affected populations in eight African countries (Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Sudan, Somalia, and Uganda) and the progress made over the last decade. Although the trends suggest a positive evolution, there is still a long way to go; malnutrition, in particular, remains a serious problem among affected populations in many countries. Furthermore, the Complex Emergency Database (CE-DAT) data shows how important differences exist between various areas of the same country. It is therefore believed that further efforts must be directed at ensuring the availability and dissemination of high-resolution health data from conflict-affected populations, so that decisions are not based on nationwide data alone. The Complex Emergency Database (CE-DAT), developed and run by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, is an international initiative to monitor and evaluate the health status of populations affected by complex emergencies. The aim was to develop a database of mortality and acute malnutrition rates--the most commonly used public health indicators of the severity of a humanitarian crisis. CE-DAT currently compiles more than 2,400 epidemiological surveys from 51 countries
