  • Global Earthquake Social Vulnerability | Global Earthquake Model Foundation

    Global earthquake SOCIAL VULNERABILITY Earthquakes can have adverse impacts that extend beyond physical damage or casualties and can severely damage economies and negatively influence societies and social well-being. The addition of the Social Vulnerability component into GEM’s scientific framework provides the means to analyze and better understand the various socio-economic factors that may exacerbate the impact of an earthquake, or that may affect the ability of communities to fully recover from damaging earthquake events. The global modelling of socio-economic vulnerability consists of three maps that depict spatially varying characteristics that affect the impact and recovery potential of populations from damaging earthquakes. Social Vulnerability The Global Social Vulnerability Map is a composite index that was developed to measure characteristics or qualities of social systems that create the potential for loss or harm. Here, social vulnerability helps to explain why some countries will experience adverse impacts from earthquakes differentially where the linking of social capacities with demographic attributes...

  • GFDRR-DFID Challenge Funds - Global Earthquake Model

    Projects GFDRR-DFID Project GFDRR-DFID Challenge Funds RELATED CONTENTS PROFILE Background The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and the UK Department for International Development's (DFID) competitive Challenge Fund pilots new and innovative approaches to overcoming technical and technological challenges in order to strengthen disaster and climate risk decision-making in developing countries. To this end, this project is supporting the development of data, products, and approaches to support disaster risk management decision-making and build resilience, including through better information, but also strengthening key steps in moving from information to insight and behaviour change. Each challenge is focusing on the development of a database with hazard footprints, exposure information and vulnerability models. The viability of the databases will be demonstrated using exposure data for Tanzania and another DFID priority country. Objectives The project is divided into three components. The British Geological Survey leads the development of a data schema and data for a multi-hazard database (Challenge 1) while GEM and University College London lead the development of a global exposure database (Challenge 2) and open vulnerability platform for evaluating risk (Challenge 3) respectively. GEM also contributes to Challenge Fund 1 and 3. GEM leads Challenge Fund 2 on the development of a global exposure data framework, which includes the physical vulnerability characteristics and exposure taxonomy. The aim is to identify the most important vulnerability characteristics; ways to account for uncertainties in exposure and vulnerability models; type of assets that should be supported by the vulnerability and exposure database; and the most common and useful intensity measure types. The objective of this project is to develop a Data Exploration Tool to promote the ability of a user to access, understand and use hazard, exposure and vulnerability data stored in a format that follows the data schema developed by the Challenge Fund consortia. Location Collaborators British Geological Survey (BGS) leads the development of a data schema and data for a multi-hazard database (Challenge 1) GEM Foundation leads the development of a global exposure database (Challenge 2) University College London (UCL) leads the development of open vulnerability platform for evaluating risk (Challenge 3) Various organizations also participated and contributed to the project such as the Geological Survey of Tanzania; Ardhi University (Tanzania); Dar Es Salaam University (Tanzania); DFID Tanzania; Prime Minister's Office - Disaster Management Department (Tanzania); DoMA (Malawi); INGC (Mozambique); Ministry of Energy & Mineral Development (Uganda); ImageCat (USA); Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT Indonesia); NSET (Nepal); IDF (Switzerland); UA (Netherlands); NGI (Norway); NOC (UK); CIMA (Italy); and UCL-EPI (UK). Beneficiaries The project has been successfully piloted in Tanzania for the development of an exposure model at the national scale, and to the city of Dar Es Salaam demonstrating how an exposure dataset at a building-by-building resolution can be created.

  • Modelling Exposure Through Earth Observation Routines (METEOR) - Global Earthquake Model

    Projects METEOR Project Modelling Exposure Through Earth Observation Routines (METEOR) RELATED CONTENTS PROFILE Background At present, there is a poor understanding of population exposure in some Official Development Assistance (ODA) countries, which causes major challenges when making Disaster Risk Management decisions. Modelling Exposure Through Earth Observation Routines (METEOR) takes a step-change in the application of Earth Observation exposure data by developing and delivering more accurate levels of population exposure to natural hazards. Providing new consistent data to governments, town planners and insurance providers will promote welfare and economic development in these countries and better enable them to respond to the hazards when they do occur. Objectives METEOR aims to formulate an innovative methodology of creating exposure data through the use of EO-based imagery to identify development patterns throughout a country. Stratified sampling technique harnessing traditional land use interpretation methods modified to characterise building patterns can be combined with EO and in-field building characteristics to capture the distribution of building types. These protocols and standards will be developed for broad application to ODA countries and will be tested and validated for both Nepal and Tanzania to assure they are fit-for-purpose. Objectives of the project look to: deliver exposure data for 47 of the least developed ODA countries, including Nepal and Tanzania; create hazard footprints for the specific countries; create open protocol; to develop critical exposure information from EO data; and capacity-building of local decision makers to apply data and assess hazard exposure. Location Collaborators METEOR Project Consortium The British Geological Survey (BGS) ImageCat National Society for Earthquake Technology (NSET) The Disaster Management Department-Tanzania The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) Oxford Policy Management Limited (OPM) Fathom Beneficiaries The resulting protocols and standards from this project will be developed for broad application to ODA countries and will be tested and validated in two contexts (Nepal and Tanzania) to assure they are fit-for-purpose. The project is expected to benefit a wide spectrum of stakeholders such as governments, NGOs, affected communities and businesses, seeking to bolster resilience and growth. Funding partner METEOR is a three year project funded by the UK Space Agency to develop innovative application of Earth Observation (EO) technologies to improve understanding of exposure with a specific focus on the countries of Nepal and Tanzania.

  • Comunicación y Formación en la Evaluación de Riesgos por Terremotos (TREQ) - Global Earthquake Model

    Projects Proyecto TREQ Comunicación y Formación en la Evaluación de Riesgos por Terremotos (TREQ) English version RELATED CONTENTS PROFILE Antecedentes El proyecto TREQ - Comunicación y formación en la evaluación de riesgos por terremotos (Training and Communication for Earthquake Risk Assessment) está diseñado para demostrar cómo la evaluación a nivel urbano de la amenaza y el riesgo sísmico puede informar a los responsables en la toma de decisiones y el desarrollo de políticas de reducción del riesgo de desastres. Igualmente, se trabajará en la formación y comunicación del riesgo por terremotos a las partes interesadas y al público en general. En los últimos años GEM ha enfocado sus esfuerzos en la evaluación de la amenaza y el riesgo sísmico en América del Sur (SARA) y América Central y el Caribe (CCARA). Como resultado se generaron modelos de acceso libre en amenaza, exposición y vulnerabilidad que han permitido la evaluación armonizada y transparente del riesgo en Latinoamérica, abarcando pérdidas humanas y económicas a causa de los terremotos. A pesar del progreso en esta materia, actualmente existe la necesidad de aprovechar los datos y modelos nacionales para realizar evaluaciones detalladas de amenaza y riesgo a nivel urbano que tengan un impacto directo en la comunicación y la implementación de medidas de reducción del riesgo de desastres. Así mismo, se debe trabajar continuamente en mejorar las capacidades locales y considerar otros factores agravantes, como el daño en infraestructura esencial (e.g. hospitales y escuelas) y los riesgos secundarios (e.g. deslizamientos y licuación de los suelos). Objetivos Este programa está organizado en dos partes principales: La evaluación de la amenaza y el riesgo sísmico a escala urbana en la región de América Latina y el Caribe (LAC), y El mejoramiento de materiales de capacitación, educación y comunicación. El objetivo de la primera parte es desarrollar la capacidad para la evaluación del riesgo de terremotos urbanos en América Latina, mientras que la segunda parte generará material de capacitación, educación y comunicación que contribuirán al entendimiento del riesgo por terremotos en todo el mundo.
