Sub-Saharan Africa Hazard and Risk Assessment (SSAHARA)

Background
The Global Earthquake Model (GEM) is leading an initiative to develop open and transparent earthquake risk models for active seismic regions in Africa. Activities involved in the Sub Saharan Hazard and Risk Assessment (SSAHARA) comprises the three fundamental aspects of earthquake risk: the earthquake hazard, the physical risk and the socio-economic vulnerabilities of the countries. They are then integrated to assess the “Integrated Earthquake Risk” of the region, which would guide decision- and policy-making activities to reduce earthquake risk and promote sustainable development.
