South America Risk Assessment (SARA)

Background
South America Risk Assessment_The South America Risk Assessment (SARA) project consisted in the development of an open and uniform seismic hazard model covering the entire continent, and seismic risk profiling for the Andean countries. The project covered the compilation of earthquake catalogues, creation of exposure datasets, vulnerability functions, risk metrics, and estimation of the compounding social and economic factors that increase the physical damage and decrease the post- event capacities of populations to respond to and recover from damaging earthquake events in South America. These activities were carried out with the involvement of several local experts and stakeholders.
