World Bank SWIO-RAFI Hazard Report
The technical report for hazards in the SWIO region details the development of regional hazard intensity profiles for tropical cyclones, earthquakes, and riverine flooding from non-tropical cyclones. A summary of each hazard model is provided in the main body of this report and detailed technical model documentation and a historical event consequence database are provided in Appendices. In this report, modeled expected hazard intensity profiles at mean return periods of 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, and 1,000 years are presented for each considered island nation and peril. Additionally, selected historical event intensity footprints are presented and compared to reported intensities. Return period hazard intensities are calculated on a 30 arc-second (approximately 1km) grid.
