  • GEM partners with World Bank

    Latest News GEM partners with World Bank READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ GEM has been successful in receiving grants to participate in three projects recently announced by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction & Recovery (GFDRR) of the World Bank, in partnership with the UK Department of International Development (DFID). The purpose of the projects is to develop a framework for a multi-hazard view of risk. The projects will develop the ‘first set of open and internally consistent data on multiple hazards, exposure, and vulnerability’. Three international consortia will collaborate to develop the data framework, with an initial focus on developing detailed data for Tanzania, together with countries such as Bangladesh, Kyrgyzstan, and Nepal. It is hoped that this framework will form the foundation for future multi-hazard impact and risk assessments. GEM will lead the consortium on the development of the open repository for exposure data and is a partner in the multi-hazard and vulnerability projects, which will be led respectively by the British Geological Survey (a GEM partner) and the University College London (a member of GEM’s global component project on vulnerability). The combined Inception Workshop for these projects will be held at GEM Headquarters in Pavia on 10-11 April. GALLERY No images found. RELATED CONTENTS VIDEO 1/0

  • ucerf3-model

    Products UCERF3 Product type Model Now DESCRIPTION UCERF3 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. Click View for details. Hazard The Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast, Version 3 (UCERF3) is a model of earthquake occurrence for California developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities (WGCEP). The time-independent version of UCERF3 (Field et al., 2013; 2014) has been used for the 2014 update of the USGS National Seismic Hazard Maps (Petersen et al., 2014). The model has been translated from its original format into the OpenQuake (OQ) engine by GEM.

  • Communicating Risk: How we respond to risk and what that means for communication

    Latest News Communicating Risk: How we respond to risk and what that means for communication READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ GEM participated recently in a UNDRR Geneva-sponsored webinar facilitated by Jeanette Elsworth, UNDRR Senior Public Information Officer. The webinar explores the emotive way people respond to risk, why even if armed with all the facts, we may still have trouble persuading people to do the right thing. The webinar also touched on what behavioral economics can teach us about the way we respond to risk, and how we apply this to policy making and public-facing media communications. Speakers include experts from behavioral economics and communications with introductory remarks from Mami Mizutori, Special Representative of the UN for Disaster Risk Reduction and Head of UNDRR. Kate Orkin, Senior Research Fellow in Behavioral Economics at the University of Oxford talked about ‘Incorporating how we behave under risk into COVID-19 communications’. She proposed that key messages must: speak socially, invoke the future and use every touch point you can to be effective in changing the intended audience’s behavior. Lisa Robinson, Head of Advisory, BBC Media Action presented the ‘3 common mistakes in designing risk communication’. She said that failure of risk communication strategies is due to the following: skimping on audience research, creating a snazzy product without a strategy for change, and avoiding conversation about risks. Ranil Dissanayake, adviser to the UK Department for International Development added that key messages and how they are designed are important in behavioral change but he also pointed out that key messages alone cannot be effective if the target demographic is faced by more immediate problems such as joblessness, poverty and hunger. However, he agreed with Kate and Lisa on the importance of understanding the intended audience in order to be effective in communicating risk. During the discussion, a trending topic focused on the importance of risk communication in changing behaviors, but participants also recognized the fact that it’s expensive and requires a lot of sustained work. Stephanie Speck, Head of Communications, Advocacy, Knowledge Management and IT, UNDRR gave the closing remarks, highlighting the possibility of a follow up webinar focusing on how to develop and implement a communication strategy when financial, material and human resources are limited.

  • Africa Earthquake Model: A major step in understanding earthquake risk in Africa

    Latest News Africa Earthquake Model: A major step in understanding earthquake risk in Africa READ MORE Photo caption: Aerial shot of Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania urban center GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS Aerial shot of Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania urban center The GEM Foundation released the Africa Earthquake Hazard and Risk model on 15th May 2019 in recognition of UNDRR's * Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction 2019 in Geneva. The technical data and information for this model can now be downloaded from the Africa Model webpage . The Africa Earthquake model underpins the African portion of GEM’s global maps released in December 2018. ​ “The Africa Earthquake Model is an important scientific contribution to ongoing efforts to reduce earthquake risk in Africa and globally.”- Djillali Benouar, Chair of Africa Science & Technology Advisory Group on DRR for the African Union. ​ The Africa Earthquake Model paints a complete picture of earthquake risk to the continent in terms of potential damage to buildings and direct economic loss. ​ The results can be used by risk managers, urban planners, emergency responders and humanitarian agencies for input to a wide range of disaster risk reduction activities including monitoring of the Sendai Framework indicators. ​ “Presently the model directly supports Sendai Framework Target C by providing estimates of direct economic losses at the national and subnational levels. Through further collaborative efforts, we plan to continue to improve the model to address Targets A, B and D by providing estimates of deaths, missing and affected persons, and impact to critical infrastructure,” said John Schneider, GEM Secretary General. ​ Read the complete text of the press release here . ​ ---------- * The former UNISDR has been formally renamed UNDRR.
