During 2019, as part of the Programme’s extension, national governments and key stakeholder of four countries - Angola, United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia - were selected to engage in the upgrade process of national risk profiles through the integration of extensive local data and knowledge.
The 2019 upgrade includes:
- Methodological improvements of the hazard component;
- Use of new available global datasets for the exposure downscaling (e.g. WSF, HRSL, GHSL);
- Use of official local data collected by national consultants (e.g. educational and health facilities, transportation systems, census information);
- Additional Sendai Indicators and related SDGs.
