Including earthquake risk perception in risk reduction modeling


This work addresses investment in earthquake loss prevention strategies and technologies as part of new construction or retrofitting/rehabilitation projects. It is also proposed a more generalized framework for a Community Earthquake Risk Reduction Model (CERRM), based upon the multiple and varied inputs to decision and action. The CERRM could provide a framework for the evaluation of the relative effects of different engineering, social, economic, or political actions on the earthquake risk of a community.
