  • Understanding seismic risk through capacity development and knowledge sharing

    july 9th 2021 TREQ WEBINAR Understanding seismic risk through capacity development and knowledge sharing Read Article Versión en español Background The TREQ Project 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 TREQ project, which runs from 2020-2021, is funded by The United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Purpose The TREQ webinar aims to present in more detail the progress and achievements that the project has made since its inception and to reach broader earthquake risk reduction and management stakeholders around the world. Panelists Available in English and Spanish | 15:00-17:00 CEST | 08:00-10:00 Bogota | 21:00-23:00 Singapore agenda The TREQ project overview Hazard models for urban assessment The Dominican Republic national hazard model Incorporating site effects in urban hazard assessment Assessment of losses due to earthquake-induced liquefaction and landslides Urban risk modelling: Quito, Cali and Santiago de los Caballeros. Development of detailed building inventories Improvements in the OpenQuake engine for urban risk assessment Urban seismic risk estimates and the challenge of communicating outputs to the community USGS on earthquake hazard- and consequence-driven scenarios for the TREQ cities Capacity building: training in hazard and risk assessment and support for university courses.

  • Seismic Risk Assessment Tools Workshop - Demonstration and Evaluation of Seismic Risk Assessment Tools

    Latest News Seismic Risk Assessment Tools Workshop - Demonstration and Evaluation of Seismic Risk Assessment Tools READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ GEM showcased OpenQuake at the Seismic Risk Assessment Tools Workshop hosted by EU Science Hub's Joint Research Centre (JRC). Marco Pagani, GEM Hazard Coordinator and Catalina Yepes, GEM Seismic Risk Engineer presented OpenQuake’s data and tools during the Seismic Risk Assessment Tools workshop held in Ispra, Lombardia, Italy on May 11-12, 2017. Held in the European Crisis Management Laboratory, the Workshop brought together some of the most widely used modern seismic risk assessment tools and a number of Civil Protection authorities from countries of the European Civil Protection Mechanism. The objective was to demonstrate the use and capabilities of the tools, explore the possible use in near-real-time impact assessment and promote their use in risk planning and disaster response.

  • Multidisciplinary expert panel conducts a 2-day review of GEM’s Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Model

    Latest News Multidisciplinary expert panel conducts a 2-day review of GEM’s Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Model READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ Panel members laud high level of technical work and extensive global collaboration in developing the global model.GEM organized a workshop from 19th - 20th April to review GEM’s Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Model, which is expected to be released on 5th December 2018. The review panel was chaired by Tom deGroeve of the European Commission and composed of multidisciplinary experts: David Wald from the US Geological Survey; George Walker, Risk Modelling Consultant (retired from Aon-Benfield); Masyhur Irsyam, Institute of Technology, Bandung, Indonesia; Ricardo Mena, UNISDR; Malcolm Haylock, Risk Modelling Consultant; and Samuel Rufat, University de Cergy Pontoise. John Rees, British Geological Survey and National Environmental Research Council, UK, participated as an ex-officio member representing the GEM Governing Board. The panel was tasked to provide advice to the GEM Governing Board on the effectiveness of GEM’s development of the global earthquake hazard and risk model, and the future direction and character of the model. On day one, GEM team leaders presented a progress overview of hazard, exposure, physical vulnerability, risk and social vulnerability models including visualization tools as well as GEM’s communication and dissemination strategy for the release in December this year. Day two focused more on the discussion of issues and preparation of review panel recommendations divided into three areas: technical improvements, technical publication of results, and public communication and dissemination of results. The panel reviewed the suitability of the Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Model with respect to GEM’s principles for collaboration, credibility, openness and public good as well as the intended application of the model or its components for various user cases. John Rees commented that “The panel members are very impressed by the high level of technical work and the extensive global collaboration in developing the global model. The global model is a major achievement for GEM and will be of enormous value to the DRR community worldwide.” For more information on the Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Model, please email info@globalquakemodel.org .

  • Technology transfer in the Middle East

    Latest News Technology transfer in the Middle East READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ The four-day workshop organized by GEM in collaboration with the Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute (KOERI) on March 14-18 continues the work carried out by the partners in the region and lays the foundation for long-term collaboration. In the framework of the USAID/OFDA-funded project, the workshop was implemented as part of the process to develop tools and procedures needed to establish a global network of GEM implementing partners. They will have the capacity to perform risk analyses and provide technical support and training in their regions, while coordinating with the GEM Secretariat in the improvement of methodologies and models according to local needs.Participants came from eight countries in the Middle East area (including Turkey), which had already contributed to the Earthquake Model for the Middle East (EMME) project under KOERI’s leadership. This time they were guided on the use of the OpenQuake-engine to perform urban risk assessments. The impact of the training was immediate: by the end of the workshop all participants managed to run a large number of hazard and risk calculations and visualize the resulting hazard, damage and loss estimates. Thanks to the training, participants had the opportunity to perform scenario calculations for their own regions and obtain damage and loss statistics for their cities. “This was one of the most successful workshops we have ever organized – said Vitor Silva, Risk Coordinator at GEM – “and I was impressed by the rapid learning ability on the use of the GEM tools”. This is certainly also a testimony to the improved computational efficiency and usability of the OpenQuake-engine interface and shows that GEM is on the right path in the development of its tools and methodologies, as well as in the adoption of appropriate technology-transfer mechanisms. Moreover, participants were impressed by the wide range of data and models available in the OpenQuake Platform and provided positive feedback on its potential contribution to the reduction of disaster risk around the world. The workshop ended with a short introduction to socio-economic vulnerability and integrated risk assessment and a dedicated session on the way forward. The participants decided to create a GEM-EMME community to promote long-term collaboration under KOERI‘s and GEM’s leadership. A corresponding proposal was submitted by the participants immediately after the workshop. GALLERY No images found. RELATED CONTENTS 1/0
