South America Model
a uniform fragility model for the most representative building classes in the Andean region, for large-scale risk analysis
South America Vulnerability
South America is part of GEM's Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Maps released to the public in December 2018. As part of the mosaic, the seismic hazard, exposure and vulnerability models employed in the calculations were either provided by national institutions, or developed within the scope of regional programs, bilateral collaborations, or by GEM.
