Vitor Silva and Anirudh Rao of the GEM Risk Team presented the Global Earthquake Model and discussed the seismic hazard and risk assessment for India, which was developed jointly with the GEM team and members from IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, and IIT Gandhinagar.

 

The model allows the estimation of losses due to earthquakes in India, considering the local construction practices.

 

“Seismic risk associated with the Indian building stock is an important topic and we are pleased to support this important research initiative by hosting the workshop” said Prof. Sudhir K. Jain, earthquake engineer and IITGN Director.

 

The workshop was covered by local online news media in Gujarati (gandhinagarsamachar.com) and English (indiatimes.com).
