country model to assess potential financial losses to commercial, industrial and residential buildings due to earthquake ground shaking

v2021

South Africa Model

Overview

GEM's South Africa earthquake risk model was generated using the hazard model for South Africa developed by the South Africa Council for Geoscience as the national hazard model, and for input to South Africa building design regulations. The vulnerability and exposure models and data were developed by GEM and cover the residential, commercial and industrial building stock. The risk model may be used to assess potential financial losses to commercial, industrial and residential buildings due to earthquake ground shaking.

The South Africa earthquake loss model (2021) is available commercially through the Nasdaq Risk Modeling Service (Oasis format) and on the Verisk (formerly AIR) Touchstone platform, and through an NDA for public good purposes.
