INTERNATIONAL DISASTER DATABASE

Since 1988 the WHO Collaborating Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) has been maintaining an Emergency Events Database—EM-DAT. EM-DAT was created with the initial support of the WHO and the Belgian Government. You can search profiles of countries or disasters, either natural or technological (industrial or transport) or disaster lists (by location, time frame, and disaster). There are also links to a Bibliography database, a Complex emergency database, and the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters website.
