2020 UNDERSTANDING RISK FORUM

Launch of the Global Model for Earthquake Social Vulnerability and Resilience (SVR)

Background

SVR modelling is an important aspect of not just understanding risk but also in reducing disaster risk at any given scale. SVR modelling can give disaster management professionals, especially at the country level, the ability to anticipate an impact that goes beyond physical damage or casualties from earthquakes. This ability to anticipate can greatly help DRR agencies to prepare and plan on how to address damage to the economy, society and social well-being as a result of disasters.

 

Purpose

To present GEM’s global model of earthquake risk, the valuable addition of the Social Vulnerability component into the Global model,  and to foster future opportunities and partnerships to reduce Earthquake risk from a global to a local perspective.
