Organisations active in disaster risk identification have

collaboratively decided to establish an interinstitutional

framwork to support and coordinate activities to promote

systematic improvement and application of risk information.

The Global Risk Identification Programme (GRIP) is a global

program created for assessing, identifying, and analysing

information on disaster risks and losses. The main objective

of GRIP is an improved evidence base for disaster risk

management to enable the application and prioritisation of

effective disaster risk reduction strategies at the national, regional,

and global scales.
