VDC level indicators for hazard, vulnerability and risk due to flood in Nepal

Hazard, vulnerability and risk due to flood are calculated at Village Development Committee (VDC) level of Nepal. Hazard index has been calculated as an arithmetic sum of flood frequency, height above nearest drainage (HAND), river density and forest density. Vulnerability index is the function of population as an Exposure, Sensitivity (sex ratio, dependency ratio and child women ratio) and Resilience (road density, population in abroad, literacy, transport facility, etc). Then risk is the sum of hazard and vulnerability index.
