treq mapEERI’s Younger Members Committee (YMC) invites you to a FREE webinar on the the Training and Communication for Earthquake Risk Assessment (TREQ) project and urban risk assessment. Experts from GEM, PartnerRe, and USGS will introduce TREQ, which aims to demonstrate how earthquake hazard and risk assessment can inform decision-makers in the development of risk reduction policies, as well as how earthquake risk can be properly communicated to stakeholders and the public in general. The project is organized into two main parts. The first one aimed to develop capacity for urban earthquake hazard and risk assessment in Latin America, Quito (Ecuador), Cali (Colombia), and Santiago de los Caballeros (Dominican Republic); while the second part developed training, educational and communication material to enhance the understanding of earthquake risk worldwide.

Moderator: Prajakta Jadhav, University of British Columbia
