Mission

The GEM Foundation is a public-private partnership that drives a global collaborative effort in which science is applied to develop high-quality resources for transparent assessment of earthquake risk and to facilitate their application for risk management around the globe.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Making disaster risk reduction a policy priority, institutional strengthening (HFA 1)

Coordination of global and regional activities related to seismic risk, community participation and networking.

Risk assessment and early warning systems (HFA 2)

- Advance knowledge of seismic hazard and vulnerability,
- Produce hazard and risk maps and indicators and widely disseminate these
- Develop and improve (open) global databases
- Promote open exchange of data and software
- Promote application of remote sensing, GIS, cost-benefit assessment
- Develop common methodologies for risk assessment…

Education, information and public awareness (HFA 3)

- Strengthen technical and scientific capacities

Reducing underlying risk factors (HFA 4)
