Chapter 2 Main Concepts and Related Frameworks 

05 Septmeber 2017

2a. Identifying and Counting Disaster Occurrences and Magnitude
The foundation for collecting statistics on disaster impacts is identification of disaster occurrences and their basic characteristics, such as magnitude, hazard type, timing, location and area extent. 
2b. Disaster Risk
Descriptions of core concepts for disaster risk measurement and their relationships with official statistics.
2c. Material Impacts and Economic Loss
Description of components of material impacts, e.g. damages to critical infrastructure and economic loss valuations. A review of general measurement challenges and some solutions.
2d. Affected Population
Description of components of affected population, including some sample tables, and a review of general measurement challenges and some solutions.
2e. Disaster Risk Reduction Activities
In order to measure DRR activity, there is a need to define the scope (classification in Part II) and describe how these statistics can be used and the general opportunities and challenges to compile this information, for example as a satellite to the System of National Accounts.
