IHRM Workshops





Workshop # 2 IHRM Probability of Natural Hazards Workshop, to be held on April 29th at the AECOM - Raleigh/Durham office in Cary, NC. 

GTM is hosting workshops to develop specific approaches for the numerous components comprising natural hazard risk assessments and mitigation. Additionally, workshops are being held to receive peer review feedback on the proposed approaches that are developed for IHRM. During these workshops, GTM is engaging experts in the appropriate fields from across the nation.

IHRM Indirect Loss Estimation Approach 
February 24, 2010 9:00 am – 4:00 pm 
at URS Corporation, 1600 Perimeter Park Drive, Suite 400, Morrisville, NC 27560

The purpose of this workshop is to:

•     Establish a general framework for conducting indirect economic loss estimation for all natural hazard types within IHRM 
•     Propose methodologies and models for calculating indirect losses (including special considerations for specific hazard types or economic and critical infrastructure and key resources sectors) 
•     Define how this framework will be integrated with the direct economic loss modeling frameworks for each hazard 
•     Propose approaches for integrating the concept of the Urban Vulnerability Index or other resiliency related methodologies within the general indirect economic loss estimation framework.
