Abstract: INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) is a European directive entered into force in 2007 with the primary goal to support the creation of policy relating to the environment. Through INSPIRE Directive an improvement of existing national spatial data infrastructure is achieved, not only in EU member states, but in all European countries including Croatia. Spatial datasets comprised with INSPIRE are divided in three annexes (Annex I, II and III) in 34 themes. One of the themes in Annex III are natural risk zones. They are defined as vulnerable areas characterised according to natural hazards (all atmospheric, hydrologic, seismic, volcanic and wildfire phenomena that, because of their location, severity, and frequency, have the potential to seriously affect society). This paper gives an overview of the establishment of NSDI in Croatia in accordance with INSPIRE and their role in crisis management with special emphasis on natural risk zones.
