Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Model
The development of the Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Model is a key priority of GEM under its 2014-2018 Work Program. The objective is to collaboratively develop a complete set of earthquake data & models, and to deliver a comprehensive global assessment of earthquake risk.
The resulting information from this project will support a wide range of disaster risk management decision- making, including (re)insurance pricing & risk transfer, and emergency response, recovery and planning in support of the Sendai Framework for DRR at subnational, national and regional scales.
This initiative is funded by GEM public and private sponsors with contributions from local, national and government agencies, universities, scientific groups, non-government organizations, and international institutions and aid agencies. The map will be released on 5th December 2018.
