GRII Demonstrators

The GRII has launched the Global Systemic Risk Assessment Tool (G-SRAT) demonstrator at COP27. The tool displays risk from climate hazards at a global scale, and includes data on hazards, vulnerability and exposure under different future climate scenarios.

Watch the introductory video and try the tool at global.infrastructureresilience.org. We invite innovators and data providers worldwide to help us to improve the GRII.

This project is led by researchers in the Oxford Programme for Sustainable Infrastructure Systems in the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford, with some analysis specifically contributed by the Global Earthquake Model Foundation, as well as the many open data sources listed here.

This project has been funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) through the UK Centre for Greening Finance and Investment, the World Bank Group, Insurance for Development Forum, and Willis Towers Watson.

This builds on previous research and development funded by UK AID through the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO) as part of a project with the Government of Jamaica (GoJ) under the Coalition for Climate Resilient Investment’s (CCRI) work on “Systemic Resilience” in collaboration with the Green Climate Fund, and also through the High-Volume Transport Applied Research project.

How to use our tools and data

For decisionmakers: browse our GRII use cases for examples of how global climate and environmental analytics could benefit  businesses and financial institutions.

For practitioners and data users: watch our introduction to the new demonstrator, try the tool and find out more about our data sources on the dedicated site.  

For all users: If you would like to speak to the team about using GRII data and tools, drawing on our expertise, or contributing data to GRII, please contact us.

 

Our prototype South Asia prototype was developed collaboratively between Oxford Infrastructure Analytics and the World Bank Disaster Risk Financing and Insurance Programme (DRFIP).

This prototype work demonstrated the scalability of this approach, paving the way for the development of our global infrastructure risk analytics.

Our previous demonstrator was launched at COP26 in 2021. Focusing on Southeast Asia, the tool presents infrastructure risk using open-data sources on fluvial and coastal flooding and cyclone hazards.

 

"With the wealth of global insurance risk modelling expertise to bring to the table, this multi-partner program will benefit policy makers, financial markets and exposed communities across the world in understanding their climate risks. This, in turn, will help decision-makers reach, communicate and implement better actions for a more resilient future for all.”
