Understanding Seismic Resilience: GEM's Global Seismic Regulation Initiative


Jul 8, 2024

Jun 20, 2024

Building earthquake-resilient communities requires a deep understanding of national seismic design regulations. The Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Foundation is launching The Global Seismic Regulation Database and Mapping Project initiative. This project aims to create a comprehensive database of current and past seismic design regulations across the globe.

This information, along with enforcement levels and seismic zonations, is important for earthquake engineers and risk modellers. It allows for the development of more accurate exposure and vulnerability models used in probabilistic seismic risk assessments and earthquake scenario planning.

Your Contribution Matters

To enrich this valuable resource, GEM is conducting a brief survey - "Evaluation of Seismic Design Code Enforcement Around the World". This survey gathers insights into the evolution and enforcement of seismic regulations in various countries.

By participating, you'll be directly contributing to a more comprehensive understanding of seismic vulnerability and risk around the world. Rest assured, all responses are confidential and used solely for seismic risk-related activities by GEM.

We encourage you to participate!  Please click the button below to fill out the form.
