CrisisInSight is the new ACAPS analysis portfolio which enables you to compare the severity of crises globally as well as the level of humanitarian access, while providing trends analysis and a forward-looking scan for risks.
In order to measure the severity of a crisis, we use the INFORM Global Crisis Severity Index (GCSI) which brings together 31 core indicators, organised in three dimensions: impact, conditions of affected people, and complexity.
Some key finding from our latest data collection in May 2019:
118 crises have been identified in 69 countries of which 34 are categorised as internal displacement
15 crises have shown no final score due to significant info gaps
8 regional crises have been included in the May dataset
