Multi-hazard Risk Assessment
Here you will find summaries of, and links to, frameworks, platforms, methods, models and tools for multi-hazard risk assessment. This section speaks to understanding disaster risk reduction, the first of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction priorities for action.
Included are examples of qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantitative approaches for hazard, vulnerability, exposure, impact and risk assessment. We include approaches that have been developed for and/or used in a multi-hazard, multi-risk assessment or where the contributor to the Disaster Risk Gateway wiki feels that the approach could be adapted for use in multi-hazard, multi-risk assessment. Some of these approaches are also applicable for Multi-hazard Risk Management.
- A Framework for Probabilistic Multi-Hazard Assessment of Rain-Triggered Lahars Using Bayesian Belief Networks: Framework based on coupling a probabilistic model for lahar triggering (a Bayesian Belief Network: Multihaz) with a dynamic physical model for lahar propagation (LaharFlow).
- CAPRA Probabilistic risk assessment platform: Provides a series of tools for hazard (single and multiple unrelated), exposure and vulnerability assessment that can be standalone, or can be integrated in a probabilistic risk assessment software
- CASCADES (CAScading Climate risks: towards ADaptive and resilient European Societies) cross-border impact framework: Framework focusing on how a climate impact occurring at a given location may be transmitted across borders
- Hazard interaction analysis for multi-hazard risk assessment: A systematic hazard interaction classification framework based on the characteristics of the hazard-forming environment for use in Multi-Hazard Risk Assessments
- MATRIX (New Multi-HAzard and MulTi-RIsK Assessment MethodS for Europe): a three-level framework for multi-risk assessment
- Multi-hazard framework for spatial-temporal impact analysis: A five-step, conceptual generic framework for multi-hazard impact analysis for the built environment
- Multi-hazards Scenario Generator: A framework for using graph theory and networks to generate and model the complex impacts of multi-hazard scenarios for risk management
- Oasis Loss Modelling Framework: A platform for running and developing catastrophe models
- RiskScape (v1.1.0): A geospatial data processing framework that lets users assess multi-hazard risk to buildings, infrastructure and people
