Preventing Death and Suffering for Twenty Years

Over the last twenty years, GeoHazards International has helped to safeguard the world’s communities most vulnerable to geophysical disasters. Here are a few examples of our global influence:

 

We introduced into emerging countries the use of “disaster scenarios” to communicate to the public and community leaders the consequences of future, probable natural disasters. This has helped residents as well as government agencies take steps to address known risks.

We developed the structural engineering curriculum for Pakistan’s leading technical university, NED University, resulting in the creation of Pakistan’s only Department of Earthquake Engineering, and the training to date of more than 400 graduate students, architects and engineers, including the woman pictured below.

We seismically retrofitted schools, and simultaneously trained local engineers and masons to replicate this work, in Nepal, Ecuador, India and Peru. We built the capacity of partners who are committed to making their communities safer. Photo credit: David Hermoza

We attracted more than $20 million for earthquake risk management projects in some of the world’s most at-risk cities. We advocated for more funds to be spent on preparing for and mitigating known natural hazards, in order to prevent death and suffering in the world’s most vulnerable and populous regions
