Global Earthquake Model - SARA project
The South America Risk Assessment (SARA) project was a regional programme promoted by the Global Earthquake Model initiative which lasted between 2013 and 2015. The project aimed to calculate hazard and risk, and to estimate the compounding social and economic factors that increase the physical damage and decrease the post-event capacities of populations to respond to and recover from damaging earthquake events in South America, by involving local experts from throughout the region. The project also focused on computing the risk to cities from selected scenarios, to acknowledge the importance that such studies have on the communication of risk.
