The Earthquake Model Central Asia (EMCA) is the GEM regional program, coordinated by the GFZ. Taking advantage of the COSERICA consortium created during the CASCADE project, EMCA aims at the crossborder assessment of seismic hazard and risk in Central Asia. The activities are subdivided in Seismic hazard assessment and Microzonation, Seismic Vulnerability, and Earthquake Risk. A synergy between EMCA and other projects ( MIIC , Progress) involving the GFZ in Central Asia is expected to provide a contribution to the GEM. (1st phase)
