Disaster group: Two main groups of disasters are distinguished in EM-DAT: natural disasters and technological disasters. This field is automatically linked to the disaster sub-group and the disaster type. There is a third group ‘Complex disasters’ which include some major famine situation for which the drought were not the main causal factor. See Table 1 for the Disasters Classification.
