Measuring Seismic Risk

Kyrgyzstan is considered the Central Asian nation with the highest level of seismic risk. As part of efforts to confront and contribute to efforts to mitigate against the negative consequences of earthquakes, the World Bank (WB) is supporting a project involving a nationwide probabilistic seismic risk assessment.

 

ESPREssO

The ESPREssO project, coordinated by AMRA Scarl, Naples, Italy and supported by Horizon 2020 “Natural hazards: Towards risk reduction science and innovation plans at the national and European level”, is setting out to contribute to a new vision for the mitigation of the effects of natural risk and climate change.

 

SIBYL

SIBYL's aim is to develop an operational framework for Civil Protection (CP) authorities to rapidly an cost-effectively assess the seismic vulnerability of the built environment. Such a framework will advise CP authorities as to the most appropriate preventative actions for cases where there is a need for short-notice vulnerability assessment in a pre-event situation and for the monitoring of the build environment's dynamic vulnerability during a seismic sequence.

 

EMCA

The Earthquake Model Central Asia (EMCA) is the GEM regional program, coordinated by the GFZ.

 

DESTRESS

DESTRESS is a Horizon 2020 supported project (Topic: Demonstration of renewable electricity and heating/cooling technologies) that is concerned with creating EGS (enhanced geothermal systems) for the more economical, sustainable and environmentally responsible exploitation of underground heat.
