South America Hazard v2020

Overview

The first version of the South America Model (SAM) was developed in the framework of the SARA project (SARA project v1.0, Garcia et al., 2017) funded by Swiss Re Foundation and benefits from the contribution of an important group of South American Institutions. Exposure data is available for Admin level 1 for population, commercial, industrial and residential buildings. Vulnerability curves are available for all building classes. The 2016 model has been available openly and continues to be. A later 2018 version was used for the global hazard and risk maps; while the 2020 version has additional important revisions.
