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).
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.
