  • 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.

  • GEM shares approach in earthquake hazard and risk assessment at the 2017 Global Platform For Disaster Risk Reduction

    Latest News GEM shares approach in earthquake hazard and risk assessment at the 2017 Global Platform For Disaster Risk Reduction READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ John Rees of the British Geological Survey and GEM Governing Board member presented GEM at the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction held in Cancun, Mexico from May 22-26. GEM’s work on earthquake hazard and risk assessment was presented during the Sendai Framework Priority 1: Understanding Disaster Risk session. The participation was aimed to contribute to the discussions on practical examples regarding the use of open data platforms that present geo-referenced earthquake risk information and exposure data in open source and interoperable formats. In particular, GEM shared the cost effectiveness and the multiple sustainable development benefits of such open risk data platforms for the public and private sector. GEM reaffirmed its commitment to continue developing tools and products, promoting open access and open source risk assessment applications, and advancing earthquake science to help achieve disaster risk reduction globally. The Fifth Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction took place from 24 to 26 May 2017 in Cancun Mexico. With the Sustainable Development Goals (the SDGs) as backdrop, the program and deliberations of the Global Platform reflected the priorities of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. The 2017 Global Platform marks the first event after the adoption of the Sendai Framework in 2015. GALLERY No images found. RELATED CONTENTS VIDEO 1/0

  • south-africa-model

    Products South Africa Product type Model Now DESCRIPTION South Africa 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. Commercial GEM’s South Africa earthquake risk model was generated using the hazard model for South Africa developed by the South Africa Council for Geoscience as the national hazard model, and for input to South Africa building design regulations. The vulnerability and exposure models and data were developed by GEM and cover the residential, commercial and industrial building stock. The risk model may be used to assess potential financial losses to commercial, industrial and residential buildings due to earthquake ground shaking. Maintained by GEM Product type Model Availability Now View Documentation Request an NDA Product restrictions Restrictions will be based on the specific procurement agreement. Currently, the Oasis and Touchstone models are only available through 3rd parties. License type Contact Nasdaq and AIR to learn how to license the models Commercial Request for Commercial License Request for Commercial Use Hazard The seismic hazard model for South Africa (ZAF) was developed by scientists from the Council for Geoscience, South Africa and the Indian Institute of Technology, Jammu, India. The model is described by Midzi et al. (2019). The seismic source model was developed using a newly updated catalogue and consists of zones of distributed seismicity, while the ground motion logic tree consists of two existing ground motion prediction equations (GMPEs) derived for active shallow crust. The model was originally created for the OpenQuake (OQ) engine.
