    In the Netherlands we use 10 impact criteria:

    1.1 Infringement of the territorial integrity
    2.1 Number of fatalities
    2.2 Number of seriously injured & chronically ill
    2.3 Physical suffering
    3.1 Financial costs
    4.1 Long-term damage to flora & fauna
    5.1 Disruption to everyday life
    5.2 Violation of the democratic system
    5.3 Social psychological impact: public (out) rage and anxiety
    6.1 Damage to cultural heritage

    The numbers 1 to 6 correspond to the Dutch ‘vital societal interests’ (see other forum discussion).

    For Forlì we have defined 8 impact criteria (for the 5 societal values):

    1.1 Casualties
    1.2 Serious injured and ill (physical and psychological)
    1.3 Displaced and lacking basic necessitities
    2.1 economic costs
    3.1 Damage and loss of environmental value
    4.1 Damage and loss of cultural heritage
    5.1 Disruption of public order and security
    5.2 Sociological and psychological impact

    All criteria have 5 levels:
    A – Limited consequence
    B – Substantial consequence
    C – Serious consequence
    D – Very serious consequence
    E – Catastrophic consequence
