GEM is comprised of the Secretariat, a Governing Board from public, private, academic and non-government organizations worldwide, and an Advisory Board (to assume its duties by June 2019).


We work together to advance the state-of-the-art for disaster risk reduction by developing data, tools and information and conducting hazard and risk assessments for improving our understanding of earthquake hazard and risk globally.

The GEM Secretariat is located in Pavia, Italy and is hosted by the EUCENTRE. For more information on how to reach us, visit our Contact Us page.
