Resilient societies through smart-city technology: Assessing earthquake risk in ultra-high resolution (RESIST)

        Belmont Forum   E-DREaM-Logo

We focus on the aspect of combining frontier science with high-density ground and building measurements to give innovative and visualized earthquake hazard and risk assessment with integration of smart data management for disaster reduction and a resilient society.

A particular stretch of this project is the integration of current and future technologies to make smart cities and their citizens more resilient. It will be a milestone for earthquake resilience in terms of smart cities. Also, it will help disaster workers and managers to use the resources in the best possible way by being informed at high-level detail. This project develops and integrates new scientific advancements to directly provide benefits to society and support all involved stakeholders in increasing resilience.

The resilient societies through smart-city technology by assessing earthquake risk in ultra-high resolution would be carried out by the following tasks, (1) Scenario based earthquake hazard and risk assessment, (2) Ultra-high-density earthquake ground motion, (3) Exposure model from Open Street modules, (4) Building array and building health monitoring, (5) Open and transparente fragilities curves of structural performace, (6) Resilient society through co-creation, education and outreach.

Public and private partnerships will be developed to inform and improve financial decision such as through the insurace industry and identification of weakness in critical infrastructure.
The loss and impact scenarios will also encourage and inform resilient urban development and future design, build societal capacity for resilience, and ensure effective disaster response from up-to-date reliable and open data. Through the co-created hazard and risk scenarios and the associated the associated education and outreach, post-disaster recovery will be expidited and society will build back better.

DR3 CRA: Disaster Risk, Reduction, and Resilience

The Disaster Risk, Reduction and Resilience (DR3) call responds to the growing need for assessment and reduction of disaster risk, collaborative co-design of resilience strategies with a breadth of stakeholders, and scientifically and technologically enhanced responses to disasters. In the context of this call, disasters are framed as extreme environmental events that negatively impact coupled human-natural systems. The generation of these events may have natural and/or anthropogenic causes.
In recent decades, through national, regional, and international endeavors, our global society has gradually learned to manage the devastating consequences of disasters and acknowledge that disaster mitigation can be most efficiently and effectively managed by collaborative engagement of all sectors of our society and through the integration of interdisciplinary scientific understanding with.
