MUNICH RE TOOLS FOR STANDARDISED NAT CAT DATA COLLECTION AND HAZARD MAPPING Peter Hoeppe Geo Risks Research/Corporate Climate Centre 2 nd Conference of the OECD International Network on the Financial Management of Large Scale Catastrophes
World Map of Natural Hazards/Globe of Natural Hazards – DVD / Wall map / Folding map 19
Globe of Natural Hazards 2009 – Products Wall map/Folding map – World Map of Natural Hazards
Globe of Natural Hazards 2009 – Products DVD – Globe of Natural Hazards
Knowledge in a state of flux All global hazard maps have been updated Globe of Natural Hazards 2009 What is new?
New hazards Topics like flood and climate change are fully integrated Globe of Natural Hazards 2009 What is new?
Hazard pointer Power function supplies quick information on situation regarding natural hazards and climate change for any location on earth Globe of Natural Hazards 2009 What is new?
View from space Knowledge can be displayed with a satellite image in the background Globe of Natural Hazards 2009 What is new?
Networked knowledge Complex topics like risk management of natural hazards and climate change are linked in a sophisticated manner Globe of Natural Hazards 2009 What is new?
Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Features Dynamic : an (updatable) model, not a map Global: covers also less developed/monitored areas according to uniform standards Open Access: a (transparent) tool to use for everybody Public Private Partnership: combining the strenghts of both sectors An internationally sanctioned program initiated by the OECD, aiming to build an independent, open standard to calculate and communicate earthquake risk around the world
GEM: A Public-Private Partnership International Scientific Organisations Intergovernmental and Governmental EU Leading Scientific Institutes Zurich Industry
GEM goals => Assess and monitor risk globally, especially in less well served regions => Raise risk awareness => Stimulate risk mitigation => Save lives, reduce losses and distribute the financial burden GEM is not an academic exercise. The goal is to convert knowledge into action. To achieve GEMs goals we need local champions
Probability of direct financial loss HAZARDRISK SOCIO- ECONOMIC IMPACT Earthquake probabilities Building Code input Earthquake impact User awareness of risk Financial tools Cost-Benefit Analysis Building inventories Vulnerabilities Probability of damage Probability of loss of lives Probability of indirect financial loss GEM Setup GEM integrates developments at the forefront of seismological and engineering knowledge in three interconnected modules engineering knowledge in three interconnected modules Probability of earthquake occurrence Probability of ground motion
