  • GEM and its partners complete GFDRR’s Challenge Funds Global Exposure Database for Multi-hazard Risk Analysis (GED4ALL)

    Latest News GEM and its partners complete GFDRR’s Challenge Funds Global Exposure Database for Multi-hazard Risk Analysis (GED4ALL) READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ A consortium led by the GEM Foundation with partners ImageCat Inc. and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team completed recently an open exposure database for multi-hazard risk assessment, as part of the Challenge Funds portfolio, managed by the GFDRR, and funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) of the United Kingdom. The main objective of Challenge Fund Global Exposure Database for Multi-hazard Risk Analysis is the development of an open exposure database, for the purposes of performing multi-hazard risk analyses. The database is capable of storing different assets (building stock, lifelines, crops, socio-economic data) across six natural hazards: earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, strong winds, tsunamis and drought. The database 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. The process has also been demonstrated for five countries around Tanzania (Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi and Mozambique) as well as Cape Verde, Senegal, Mali, Niger and in other countries outside of the African continent. The outputs include a detailed description of the structure of the tables comprising the GED4ALL exposure database schema and the relationships between them, a description of the software components required for installation and basic operation of the database and the associated tools for converting, importing and exporting data. Paul Henshaw, GEM Director of Technology and Development also notes that “The project is a major step forward in defining a global multi-hazard database for use in assessing risks due to natural hazards. The approach also demonstrates how the combination of international expertise, open standards, local knowledge, inclusiveness and collaborative approach can encourage risk awareness and mitigation.” Paul also presented the final outputs of Global Facility for Disaster Recovery and Reduction (GFDRR) Challenge Fund 2: Global Exposure Database for Multi-hazard Risk Analysis (GED4ALL) during the projects closing workshop held in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania from 22-24 March. The British Geological Survey (BGS) and University College London (UCL) presented the results of Challenge Fund 1 (multi-hazard database) and 3 (vulnerability database) respectively. More than 30 individuals participated from various organizations such as 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), GFDRR (USA), DFID UK, IDF (Switzerland), BGS (UK), UA (Netherlands), NGI (Norway), NOC (UK), CIMA (Italy) and UCL-EPI (UK).

  • Hands-on with the OpenQuake engine at the 4th GEM Annual Risk Workshop

    Latest News Hands-on with the OpenQuake engine at the 4th GEM Annual Risk Workshop READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ From November 20th to 22nd, the GEM Foundation hosted the fourth edition of the Risk Workshop. The annual event brings together GEM partners from both the private and public sectors around the world to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing. It provides an opportunity to demonstrate new features and improvements on the OpenQuake suite of tools, as well as the latest developments in the hazard and risk models and datasets. This year, the workshop had the following specific goals: Explore GEM's risk datasets, models and tools Present GEM’s Risk Modeler’s Toolkit to derive fragility and vulnerability models Prepare exposure and vulnerability models for the OpenQuake-engine using the Input Preparation Toolkit (https://platform.openquake.org/ipt/) Perform seismic risk analysis and scenario loss estimations using the OpenQuake-engine Contribute to GEM’s Global Risk Modeling effort The event featured presentations from the GEM team, and several scenario risk calculations using the OpenQuake engine. The exercises allowed participants to experiment first hand how the engine works with the GEM Risk Team verifying and checking the results. Participants from ARUP (United Kingdom) demonstrated how some of the GEM tools were employed in the assessment of earthquake risk in Kyrgyzstan as part of a World Bank project. The partners from NSET (Nepal) presented how Nepal is recovering from the 2015 Gorkha earthquake, and preparing other towns for future events by collecting detailed information regarding the built up environment. Aspen Re (Switzerland/UK) shared how GEM tools and models can be used to better understand the drivers of uncertainty in CAT modeling. Finally, Dr. Christopher Burton from Auburn University (USA) highlighted the need to go beyond the physical risk, and to incorporate the social aspects in the evaluation of earthquake threat. The workshop also had the participation of other experts from ETH, INGV, EUCENTRE, Zurich, CICESE, SCOR, AXA, PartnerRe, OYO, Pacific Disaster Center and NKUA. On the last day the participants enjoyed a guided tour of the EUCENTRE Foundation laboratories led by Dr. Filippo Dacarro, Lab Director. The tour included a visit to the old and new shake table, inaugurated in September 2017. The outcomes of the training were positive: for instance, Suman Pradhan and Kirty Tiwari from NSET, Nepal, mentioned the importance of the GEM Taxonomy for their work, and complimented the GEM Staff for the success of the event. They committed to returning to Nepal and train their colleagues on how to use OpenQuake. Katherine Coates, from ARUP, affirmed the discussions and presentations were excellent, and appreciated the hands-on practice and the activities offered by GEM. GALLERY No images found.

  • 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 1/0
