  • Sura and GEM continue collaboration to understand earthquake risk for Latin America

    Latest News Sura and GEM continue collaboration to understand earthquake risk for Latin America READ MORE Photo caption: https://www.suramericana.com/index.html GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS https://www.suramericana.com/index.html Suramericana S.A., an insurance company with presence in nine countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Mexico, Panama, Uruguay), most of which have significant earthquake risk, will work with GEM to further enhance the understanding of seismic risk in the region. The project, which will run for two years to the end of 2021, continues the partnership with Suramericana which, over the past 6 years, has contributed significantly to GEM’s hazard and risk information and models in Latin America. In the area of seismic hazard, the new project will focus on the implementation of site response analysis in the OpenQuake engine, which will enable GEM to implement Sura’s information on site conditions, and on the development of improved tools to reduce the uncertainty in the estimation of earthquake hazard in the region. In seismic risk, the project will focus on validation, testing and calibration of building vulnerability models, with a particular focus on high-rise structures, and on assessing losses due to business interruption and human fatalities.

  • GEM-USGS partnership to help enhance global earthquake loss modeling efforts

    Latest News GEM-USGS partnership to help enhance global earthquake loss modeling efforts READ MORE Photo caption: USA Average Annual Loss map. Map credit: Anirudh Rao GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS USA Average Annual Loss map. Map credit: Anirudh Rao The Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Foundation and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) signed an agreement that will pave the way for both parties to work collaboratively to enhance global earthquake loss modeling efforts and to incorporate these new developments into the USGS PAGER System – a system that provides fatality and economic loss impact estimates following significant earthquakes worldwide. The USGS will be designated as an Associate Partner of GEM to allow USGS scientists to directly participate in the GEM Governing Board meetings. The agreement also stipulates for both parties to undertake new scientific collaboration, hazard and loss model calibration, and to promote new developments, and to seek new national or international joint collaboration activities/projects to be funded internally or through external partners, e.g., USAID/OFDA, World Bank, UNDRR. “We have been a strong supporter of GEM since GEM’s early days, and I have worked very closely with the Risk Team on various projects. With our partnership formalized, I have no doubt that this will usher in a new era of collaboration on global seismic hazard and risk assessment efforts for both organizations. ” - Kishor Jaiswal, Research Civil Engineer, USGS. ​ “This partnership is important not only for GEM but also for our public and private stakeholders worldwide. The expertise and experience that USGS brings will complement GEM’s programs in global earthquake hazard and risk assessment.” – John Schneider, GEM Secretary General. GALLERY No images found.

  • Launch of GEM Products webpage

    Latest News Launch of GEM Products webpage READ MORE Photo caption: GEM's new Products webpage GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS GEM's new Products webpage GEM is launching its new Products webpage: www.globalquakemodel.org/products . We’ve made significant changes that we hope will make finding GEM products, models and tools easier and faster. The new Products webpage is part of GEM’s efforts to continue to make information freely and openly available, and to broaden its range of products and services for the benefit of the disaster risk management and reduction community. With a new Products page, GEM hopes to further strengthen its efforts to increase their availability and accessibility. The page features a full GEM product list categorized into four product types: models, software, global maps (analog and digital) and datasets. The list is searchable by title or keywords and can be downloaded as an Excel file. If you do not find what you’re looking for, we’ve added a Request button so you can contact us for a specific request. The new Products page is still a work-in-progress and we plan to add more cool stuff in the near future to further enhance your experience on data and information accessibility. Watch for a number of new products to be released in the coming months At the end of September and December we will be releasing a number of additional earthquake hazard and risk models from the Global mosaic of models developed by GEM, which make up the global maps released in 2018. For earthquake hazard, by the end of the year GEM and its partners will have openly released hazard models for 75% of the land area worldwide, and will have made available for public-good, non-commercial use, hazard models for all countries except China. For risk, by the end of the year, GEM will have released vulnerability models for all residential, commercial and industrial building types (more than 600) and all exposure data to Administrative Level 1 (Provincial) that was used to develop the global risk model (2018). Country profiles with AAL (average annual loss) and PML (probable maximum loss) curves for the three building classes (residential, industrial, and commercial) will have been released for all 192 countries modelled. Finally, social vulnerability indicators will also be released under an open license at country level or Admin 1 (provincial). We are counting on your feedback to further improve the page. We will definitely be listening to what you - our stakeholders -­ have to say. You can send us your feedback by clicking the Feedback button or Contact Us icon. GALLERY No images found.

  • USAID-GEM project aims to build capacity for urban earthquake risk assessment in Latin America and the Caribbean region

    Latest News USAID-GEM project aims to build capacity for urban earthquake risk assessment in Latin America and the Caribbean region READ MORE Photo caption: TREQ project locations GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS TREQ project locations USAID through OFDA recently signed an agreement with GEM in the implementation of Training and Communication for Earthquake Risk Assessment or TREQ project. TREQ is designed to demonstrate how earthquake hazard and risk assessment can inform decision makers in the development of risk reduction policies, as well as how earthquake risk can be properly communicated to stakeholders and the public in general. The project will run from 2019-2021 in the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region covering the following locations: Quito (Ecuador), Cali (Colombia), and Santiago de los Caballeros (Dominican Republic) for earthquake hazard and risk assessment in urban centres. For the training, educational and communication component, activities will involve the general public and academics in Latin America and The Caribbean, Asia and Africa. The project targets a wide spectrum of stakeholders, categorized into four main groups: decision-makers and public authorities, practitioners and engineers; researchers and academia; and the general public. TREQ will be formally launched in Quito, Ecuador in early 2020. Sign up to receive future updates on the project activities here . GALLERY No images found. RELATED CONTENTS VIDEO 1/17
