The BEYOND Center of Excellence team contributed with its know-how and expertise to the service request of Earthquake Risk assessment, Planning and Recovery, for three sub-regions of the Austria territory; (a) between Wiener Neustadt and Vienna, (b) in the area Innsbruck and (c) in Carinthia.
The scope of the service request EMSN-021 was the generation of seismic hazard, vulnerability and risk products as far as it concerns the population and assets at risk (infrastructures/environmental assets and transportation network), as well as the evaluation of the likelihood and extent of secondary risks triggered by earthquake (landslides and flood).
Risk-specific mitigation measures were proposed and critical first response spatial analysis was carried out to support decision making concerning planning and recovery activities of the involved stakeholders.
