Description

The GEM Foundation has produced a collection of Country/Territory Seismic Risk Profiles that summarize key metrics of seismic risk, to provide stakeholders in risk management an overview of the risk in a region at a glance. Each profile presents the following relevant information: Social indicators, which provide context to the region in question

- Risk indicators, detailing an occupancy breakdown of exposed value and losses

- A list of the major earthquakes that have impacted the region 

- Loss per region, providing a breakdown of average annual losses per Administrative level 1

- Building classes, depicting the major construction materials used in the region

- Loss curves, which provide expected losses per different return periods

- Maps depicting the geographical distribution of hazard, exposure and losses.

The risk results are the results of an event-based risk analysis, where 100,000 years of earthquakes are simulated. Three lines of business are considered: residential, commercial, and industrial. Therefore, value or earthquake losses to other building occupancies (e.g., schools, healthcare) and infrastructure are not included.
