Hazards: earthquakes and their cascading effects, like floods and fire outbreaks.
Systemic vulnerability will be identified by indicators of social and economic metrics using the additive approach of the multi-criteria and decision-making analysis in GIS, highlighting complex vulnerability hotspots related to different hazard scenarios. Building vulnerability (expressed in different damage levels) will be quantified based on analytical methods. The consequences of a major earthquake projected in the response intervention travel times will be integrated into a systemic vulnerability evaluation as part of the risk assessment. Risk mitigation will be enhanced by developing a framework of systemic vulnerability understanding based on earthquake risk perception and disaster preparedness behaviour. The multi-hazard vulnerability and coping capacities will be tested with locals and authorities by participatory tools (PGIS, psychometric research, and focus groups). Results aim to improve emergency response planning.
