The Public Sector Challenge
Empowerment. Resilience. Data-driven.
Studying and understanding earthquake hazard and risk even in countries considered to be seismically safe, is important because it can help governments in land use zoning, urban planning, improving building codes and reducing disaster risk especially in areas with high population and building densities. In most cases, this task requires collaborative partnerships with scientific and research institutions due to the complexity and extent of the undertaking.
What we offer
The Global Earthquake Model Foundation (GEM) offers comprehensive approach to seismic hazard and risk assessment - from hazard, exposure, vulnerability and risk modeling to our pioneering efforts in social vulnerability and recovery.
