  • GEM | Who We Are

    who we are The GEM Foundation is a non-profit, public-private partnership that drives a global collaborative effort to develop scientific and high-quality resources for transparent assessment of earthquake risk and to facilitate their application for risk management around the globe. ​ Assisted by an initiative of the OECD's Global Science Forum, GEM was formed in 2009 as a non-profit foundation in Pavia, Italy, funded through a public-private sponsorship with the vision to create a world that is resilient to earthquakes . GEM’s mission is to become one of the world’s most complete sources of risk resources and a globally accepted standard for seismic risk assessment; and to ensure that its products are applied in earthquake risk management worldwide. Openness Open data, open software, transparent processes, freely accessible to the public Collaboration Public-private partnership, inclusiveness, working together across geographies and disciplines Credibility Commitment to scientific credibility, trusted by local and global partners and peers Public Good Motivated by the welfare of the public, works to serve the public good CORE PRINCIPLES GEM builds capacity to assess and manage risk through open, transparent and collaborative seismic risk assessment at local, national, regional and global scales. Using state-of-the-art tools, GEM is committed to share and advocate open, reliable earthquake risk information to support sound disaster risk-reduction planning at various levels.
