  • Chernobyl > Contaminated area (percent of country): This stat shows the percentage of the listed countries' surface that was contaminated by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, in the radiation range from 37 to 185 kilobecquerels/m2 of Caesium 3, a radioactive isotope of caesium which is one of the more common products of nuclear fission. This was the lowest level of radioactivity detected in Europe, and some of these countries received higher levels of contamination, although in less extensive areas.
  • Disaster risk reduction progress score > 1-5 scale; 5=best: Disaster risk reduction progress score (1-5 scale; 5=best). Disaster risk reduction progress score is an average of self-assessment scores, ranging from 1 to 5, submitted by countries under Priority 1 of the Hyogo Framework National Progress Reports. The Hyogo Framework is a global blueprint for disaster risk reduction efforts that was adopted by 168 countries in 2005. Assessments of "Priority 1" include four indicators that reflect the degree to which countries have prioritized disaster risk reduction and the strengthening of relevant institutions.
  • Disaster risk reduction progress score > 1-5 scale; 5=best per million: Disaster risk reduction progress score (1-5 scale; 5=best).
