GESI: Global Earthquake Safety Initiative - Pilot project


The report summarizes the purpose, the methods and the activities of the Global Earthquake Safety Initiative (GESI) pilot project. It documents the increase of earthquake risk in developing countries over the past century, and proposes that the persistence of this risk is due to low awareness of the risk and of affordable means to manage it. It also describes a method that GeoHazards International (GHI) developed over the last two years to assess community earthquake safety.
