This CD-ROM is a tool to help disaster management decision makers predict the magnitude of a disaster on a specific population, to assess where damage might be the greatest and to forecast specific resources which may be required to reduce health risks to vulnerable populations. It uses GIS and disaster models that cover all the countries of the Region.
