  • Get Involved | Global Earthquake Model Foundation | Italy

    GET INVOLVED GEM offers flexible mechanisms to enable potential partners to contribute to its ongoing and future work programs. Partners and collaborators can enter into sponsorships, project partnerships and service agreements, and can select the level of engagement based on the needs and requirements. BECOME A SPONSOR RECENT PARTNERS GEM’s sponsorship structure and fees have been designed to incentivize participation of public and private organizations. Public Governors may propose to contribute directly to the work program via an in-kind project to offset the *GERD-based sponsorship contribution. The minimum fees in the table below apply only to sponsors who sign up for three years or more. Sponsor Types and Contributions (2020 onwards) Option 1: Small Business Advisor Sponsor - for businesses of <20 employees and revenue of < 3M euro per year. The fees are 35k euro per year for a minimum of three years. If the number of employees or revenue exceed the threshold amount in a given year, the fees for subsequent years increase to the Standard Advisor level of 75K euros/year. These criteria must hold for full duration of the sponsorship. ​ *Option 2: Start-up Business Advisor Sponsor - for businesses of <20 employees and revenue of < 3M euro per year that anticipate growth in subsequent years. The fees are 150K for three years, with contributions of 25K, 50K and 75K in respective years. If growth is not realized in a given year (i.e., does not exceed the employee and revenue limit), the fees for subsequent years revert to those for Small Business Advisor Sponsor (35,000 euro per year). These criteria must hold at start, commitment for 3 years. ​ Option 3: Shared Advisor Sponsor - for businesses of <20 employees and revenue of < 3M euro per year. The fees are 75K per year for three years pooled between up to three small business organizations. One organization is designated as the focal point for communication with GEM and participation in meetings. These criteria must hold for all partners for the full duration of the sponsorship. BECOME A SPONSOR RECENT PARTNERS Why we support GEM Abhineet Gupta OneConcern Our work with GEM will add value to the AI-based multi-hazard platform that we’ve developed for earthquakes and floods, so that communities can better prepare for and respond to these disasters.

  • South American Risk Assessment (SARA) - Global Earthquake Model

    Projects SARA Project South American Risk Assessment (SARA) RELATED CONTENTS PROFILE Background South America incorporates some of the most seismically active regions on the planet, where the South American subduction zone generates the forces to create the Andes Mountains and drives the occurrence of destructive earthquakes across Chile, western Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela. In turn, the high vulnerability of many structures and the high population density of the main cities are factors that contribute to the region’s high seismic risk. In the last two decades alone, over 3,000 fatalities have been reported, and the economic losses have exceeded 30 billion USD (EM-DAT, ). www.emdat.be While expert capabilities exist in these countries to assess earthquake risk, the information, infrastructure, tools, and collaboration networks necessary to develop comprehensive knowledge among scientists and engineers and to move this knowledge into the mainstream of disaster risk reduction activities has been lacking. Objectives The approach is to bring together international best practice tools and methodologies with local expertise and knowledge needed to establish local ownership and define risk assessment objectives and priorities. GEM Foundation combined these elements and focused on developing local capacities across sectors (academic, public and private), across technical disciplines (e.g., hazard, risk, IT), and through the implementation of disaster risk reduction policies and programs. The program of capacity development was initiated in 2013 with the South America Risk Assessment (SARA) Project to bring experts, institutions, and stakeholders from 7 countries to develop a regional assessment of earthquake hazard and risk. GEM provided its OpenQuake earthquake hazard and risk analysis software and other tools and databases freely and openly to all participants. More than 50 of the region’s experts across 17 institutions collaborated to produce critical data sets, develop common approaches, and develop open-source tools for both data collection and interpretation. Location Collaborators The SARA Project, completed in December 2015, provided the foundation for formal and informal collaborations at many levels and for many purposes. GEM subsequently developed formal partnerships across public and private sectors (e.g., SuraAmerica Insurance, the Geological Survey of Colombia, EcoPetrol), academic partnerships (e.g., EAFIT Univ, Univ del Norte, Univ Catolica Chile), non-profits (e.g., OSSO), and most recently, with municipal governments (Cali, Colombia and Quito, Ecuador), for urban risk assessments. ( ) complete list Beneficiaries The project has been successfully implemented in the Andean Region (Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina) for the assessment of earthquake risk at the national and regional scales, and to the cities of Quito, Ecuador; Medellin, Colombia; and Cali, Colombia. Funding partner The SARA project is funded by the Swiss Re Foundation, a separate legal entity of Swiss Re Group.

  • Global Earthquake Risk Map

    Global Earthquake Maps Global Earthquake Risk Map VIEWER PDF PNG CONTRIBUTORS DOCUMENTATION References ​ TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION The Global Seismic Risk Map (v2018.1) comprises four global maps. The main map presents the geographic distribution of average annual loss (USD) normalised by the average construction costs of the respective country (USD/m2) due to ground shaking in the residential, commercial and industrial building stock, considering contents, structural and non-structural components. The normalised metric allows a direct comparison of the risk between countries with widely different construction costs. It does not consider the effects of tsunamis, liquefaction, landslides, and fires following earthquakes. The loss estimates are from direct physical damage to buildings due to shaking, and thus damage to infrastructure or indirect losses due to business interruption are not included. The Global Seismic Hazard Map depicts the geographic distribution of the Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA) with a 10% probability of being exceeded in 50 years, computed for reference rock conditions (shear wave velocity of 760-800 m/s). The Global Exposure Map depicts the geographic distribution of residential, commercial and industrial buildings. The Global Seismic Fatalities Map depicts an estimate of average annual human losses due to earthquake-induced structural collapse of buildings. The results for human losses do not consider indirect fatalities such as those from post-earthquake epidemics. The average annual losses and number of buildings are presented on a hexagonal grid, with a spacing of 0.30 x 0.34 decimal degrees (approximately 1,000 km2 at the equator). The average annual losses were computed using the event-based calculator of the OpenQuake engine, an open-source software for seismic hazard and risk analysis developed by the GEM Foundation. The seismic hazard, exposure and vulnerability models employed in these calculations were provided by national institutions, or developed within the scope of regional programs or bilateral collaborations. These global maps and the underlying databases are based on best available and publicly accessible datasets and models. Due to possible model limitations, regions portrayed with low risk may still experience potentially damaging earthquakes. The GEM Risk Map is intended to be a dynamic product, such that it may be updated when new datasets and models become available. Releases of updated versions of the seismic risk map are anticipated on a regular basis. Additional hazard and risk metrics for each country can be explored at globalquakemodel.org/gem.
