Global Hazards Information Network (GHIN)


To continue to meet the changing needs of the global disaster management community, PDC has recently implemented changes to our data sharing and access policies. As part of these changes, the Global Hazards Information Network (GHIN) portal has been taken offline. Most of the data resources will remain available in PDC’s DisasterAWARE® Early Warning and Decision Support system. Access to DisasterAWARE is free for the disaster management community including government agencies and humanitarian assistance organizations. You can register for an account here.


We also provide access for qualifying individuals and organizations to PDC’s geospatial services. Please complete the following steps to request access:


1.     Visit PDC’s Contact Form at

2.     Complete all necessary fields (name, organization, email, and a brief description on how the data will be used).

3.     Under the ‘How can we help?’ dropdown, please select ‘Data Access Request’.

4.     Once submitted, an email will be sent to you with an attached Data Usage Agreement with next steps.


Additionally, PDC has joined the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) and will be encouraging our GHIN partners to do the same. Please look for PDC data resources in HDX in the near future.


We look forward to working with data providers and the disaster management community globally, continuing our mission to build a safer more disaster resilient world.
