Title: Annex 2: Study of uncertainty for quality assessment of loss data
Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: This report presents a state of the art for recording disaster loss data in European Union member states. It summarizesthe contribution of experts from 15 EU Member States. A comparative analysis shows that methodologies for disaster lossdata collection and recording in Europe are heterogeneous and that the available loss databases vary in their level ofcompleteness and detail. Also IT systems vary in purpose, complexity and openness. This precludes a reliable andrepresentative aggregation of loss data at the EU level.This report provides recommendations to European Union Member States that would help increase the quality of (shared)loss data within the current policy framework. It is recommended to continue the consultative process in a third phasewith the aim of expanding the network of Member States ready to participate, tackling remaining technical issues in theEU framework for disaster loss recording and assisting Member States in implementing better loss data recordingprocesses.
